Spooktacular 5K

Eight Years. . .Running!

2017 will mark the 8th Annual Spooktacular 5K to be held as a part of the Oblong Fall Follies, this community’s annual fall festival.  The date is set: October 28, 2017.  We hope to welcome the biggest crowd ever.  Please consider being a part.

The race begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Oblong City Park.  The Oblong Children’s Christian Home is pleased to be the first event of the day!  (Many athletes enjoy the pancake breakfast offered immediately after at the First Methodist Church as well.)

The 3.1-mile route is flat and fast, but this is just a fun run.  We do not chip time, but we do have fun. In previous years, we’ve had runners and walkers dress in costume even!  Participate as a group, challenge your co-workers, or encourage your small group to walk/run with you.

Still curious?  Take a look at some photos from last year’s event!

And, as always, if you have any questions about this event, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We’re happy to tell you all about this fun fall race that benefits a terrific local ministry.  Thank you!
