Race the Dead is a fun run opportunity to dress up and scare your fellow runners, hosted out of Kicks Bar and Grill in Towanda. The course is a flat 5K in length, but some don’t make it past the first water stop. Scenic luminaries line the old RT 66 course and you run past the historic haunted Towanda cemetery on this out and back course. While the luminaries gorgeously define the course we recommend you bring a flashlight, especially if you are a slower runner. While costumes are not required, if you dress up in your favorite Halloween costume, you might win a prize.

Race start is at sundown in Towanda which will be 5:55 PM. Could have some noise makers at the start, and depending on wind conditions the race will start +/- 60 seconds of 5:55 PM
