Trick or Trail 5-Mile & 1-Mile Spooky Sprint @ Dupont State Forest
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm
Trick or Trail 5-Mile & 1-Mile Spooky Sprint @ Dupont State Forest | Hendersonville | North Carolina | United States

The only race of its kind in the region, participants will strap on headlamps and light up the night as they duke it out in the dusk. The twists and turns of DuPont’s famous trail system will dare them to push forward, not knowing what bogies and specters might lurk around each corner! The One Mile Spooky Sprint will be Halloween themed, and a great chance for kids and kids-at-heart to break in their costumes a day early, without stressing about time limits, as this event is untimed!
