About Running Scared

Our 12th Annual Running Scared 5k is Sat., Oct.12th, 2019

The Running Scared 5k was first started in 2008.  It is a flat 3.1 mile course through a “spooky” cemetery, ending at a fabulous Halloween Fest!  Participants are encouraged to run/walk in costumes. After the race, people are admitted to the post race party where they can listen to a hot band or have a cold beer. They can enjoy food and drinks from our generous sponsors and listen to the live jammin’ band while they stay toasty warm inside or gather around the roaring fire outside.

Again for 2019, we have made it optional to purchase our world famous t-shirt. If you are an experienced runner and already have a closet full of t-shirts or just don’t want another, you can enjoy the experience for only the Race Registration fee.

If you are one of the hundreds who have already started collecting our great looking race t-shirts, we are still offering them this year: Prices will be available soon.

Hey, it’s a Free Country! You have a choice. We hope you will choose to give the Running Scared 5k a try. We know you will come to love it above all others.

The best thing about the Running Scared 5k is that it benefits Youth Education. To date approximately $360,000 has been raised to help children in the Cincinnati Valley area!
