About the Halloween Social- Distance Classic: Halfathon Only.
5K & 10K Cancelled.
The Halloween 5K and 10K have been cancelled. All participants who were registered for the 5K or 10K have been notified about their registration options via email. If you were registered for the 5K or 10K and have not received an email please contact us at info@FLRoadRaces.com
Please know we are doing the absolute best we can to stage this race with limited participation, which we see as a bridge to returning to “normal” races. If we can execute this race with limited participation, perhaps county officials will allow us to increase participation in the future.
Thank you for understanding our goal to survive these difficult times so we can continue to serve the running community for years to come.
“Another great job with the Halloween Halfathon! Loved the course, loved the Halloween twist on the starfish medals, and of course the volunteers were great and everything was so organized! You also do a great job with communication – thanks so much!”
