Perhaps the notion of operating currently scares you, but if racing with ghosts and goblins chasing you sounds like exciting, there are various Halloween-themed races for you and your little ones this weekend. Right here are seven of them:

Eerie Erie

If you are seriously into Halloween, you have to give them props for that name. This 1 goes off Saturday morning, with your selection of a 5K or 10K in Erie, taking benefit of Coal Creek open space trails. The 10K passes a cemetery. erieoptimists.org/eerie-erie

Pumpkin Smash and Dash

A further Saturday race with your selection of a 5K or 10K. It will take place at the Terrific Lawn Park in Lowry and will be followed by pumpkin-carving, costume contests, sack races and other frightful frivolity. “T’will be a frighteningly exciting run, stroll, crawl or scamper o’er a haunting hovering of hordes of vampires!” according to the race’s on-line description. featonthestreet.com

The very same outfit is placing on Monster Dash races at Sloan’s Lake on Saturday morning and Louisville’s Neighborhood Park on Sunday afternoon. Your selection of 5K or 10K. There will be jumpy castles, pumpkin-painting, carnival games, costume contests, a pie-consuming race and a lot more.
