“Boo”, Made You Run

Recommended by Adaora Ntukogu

If you love Halloween and are looking for a unique twist to your Halloween festivities, the Atlanta Halloween Half Marathon and 5K is the event for you! The races begins on October 27 in Piedmont Park, a beautiful location in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, central to many popular events. The concept of the Halloween marathon was developed in 2009, in hopes to add a unique experience to a traditional running event. Dressing up is highly encouraged and many runners complete the marathon decked out in their costumes from head to toe. Although you may not achieve your personal best time, you’ll be left with everlasting memories.

If you are not into running, there is something for you; volunteers of all age groups are welcomed to assist at water/aid stations and finish line stations.
