Frightening 5K and Haunted Hilly Half Marathon

  • 26
Frightening 5K and Haunted Hilly Half Marathon
  • 8:45am EDT - 11:00am EDT, October 26th, 2013
  • Boo Ha Ha!  Sign up if you dare for this frightening and haunted event!  Courses begin and end in Bonneyville Mill County Park and feature some beautiful rollling county roads.  You need to train for this one to make sure you stay ahead of the goblins. We also need to tell you that the Headless Horseman has been known to show up as well!  Many runners dress in costume so they can blend in. 

    The Monster Mile is a non-timed trail walk that meanders through the lovely park by the Mill.  Milers also have the option of running on the road with the 5K to the edge of the park and back.

    The 5K is an out and back course that goes up past LoveWay Therapeutic Riding stable and back into the park with a fast downhill finish.

    The half marathon course is a challenging loop run in the country from Bristol over to Middlebury and back on paved roads, surrounded by old growth trees on much of the run. This is the perfect tune up for Tecumseh and or the Huff 50K. Keep that Chicago marathon buzz going with this half! 

    Registration is $10  for the Monster Mile (shirts additional $15), $40 for the 5K and $55 for the Half Marathon . Fees include, Post race soup, cocoa , cookies and fruit, long sleeve technical shirts with the vampire logo, chip timing by THTiming, finisher awards, AG trophies and protection from the headless horseman.

    Costumes encouraged! In fact, prizes for best male and female costumes. 


    Where is Bonneyville Mill?

  • Location: Bonneyville Mill County Park, Bristol. IN

Can we talk about Swag City?

Jack and Julie rounded up so many prizes, we don't have time to do a traditional raffle pull. Every runner and volunteer will get one ticket and you can buy more (you will want to) There will be 3 buckets:

Grand Prize

Random prizes for dinners, detailing, glassware, camp chairs, etc etc

50-50 cash prize

Pack that extra $20 in your pocket-  we have so many prizes! Every DIME goes to the Down Syndrome Group so, you can't go wrong!

5K course, out and back from Bonneyville to LoveWay and return!

There are heated indoor restrooms, very close to the start!  Last year, it was pretty crisp in the morning, as it has been, but it warmed up by the end.

The area is absolutely beautiful and the leaves are just turning wonderful colors. The  Bristol Fruithills - complete with rolling hills and open acres for horses! Wonderful!
