Welcome to Running Scared 5k!
If you are a “streaker” and have ran in past years’ races, then you know we change our little skeleton logo each year. We change the color of our t-shirts each year too. It makes it fun to collect our shirts. Lucky for you, we sell vintage shirts in case you may have missed one or two of them. This is our 7th annual Running Scared 5k! This year we are going with your choice of a long or short sleeve chocolate brown shirt. The colors seemed perfect for fall. What do you think?
You may register for the 5k and Kids Fun Run beginning June 1st.
We will have a document by then on our Registration page for the 5k and the Kids Fun Run or you may register online at GetMeRegistered.com/RunningScared5k
