Congratulations to all on surviving truly brutal conditions! You all were amazing!!
The Hairy Gorilla Half Marathon & Squirrelly Six Mile is part running race, part costume party, and is truly among the most unique events you'll ever do! Be on the look out for gorillas that have gone bananas, nutty squirrels, graves with your own names on them, and other inanity to keep you smiling and enjoying the beautiful views that await!
In 2022, join us for our 18th year of festive running mayhem at an event that has been dubbed the Best Costume Trail Race in America by Runnersworld!

Get ready for a great time! It's all about Halloween at this event - you are highly encouraged to dress up. Our volunteers will be costumed, we make a grave yard with the names of many of our pre-registered runners, and the course is even decorated in sections to be very spooky!
Post race, you'll receive a sweet finisher's medal and AWESOME post race food! Do note that there is not a merchandise item included with your registration.
Want to see something adorable? Check out this ~Half Mile kids event! While open to children 12 and under, most who participate range in age from 3 to 6 and always come in costume. Entry is $5/child and includes a custom finisher medal and post race snacks.
While you may have them on-site at the event, you are not permitted to participate with pets or strollers.
Be part of the Halloween fun! We welcome you to join us as a volunteer and help make it a true Halloween delight!
