What are YOU doing on Friday, October 28th?
I’m hoping you are coming down for the Frightening 5k and Mini Monster’s Dash I’ll be directing in Northfield!
I started this race last year when I was looking for a local 5k around Halloween. I didn’t find one, so decided to put one on myself. It was a ton of fun, so I’m putting on the 2nd annual event this year – even though directing it again this year makes an already crazy schedule even crazier.
The event has two races. The Mini Monster’s Dash is first at 5:30pm. This 1/2 mile event is free and open to kids of any age – either running it themselves, alongside a parent, or being pushed in a stroller! Costumes are highly encouraged. I’ll never forget last year’s fairy princess who skipped/pranced along the course. Wish I would have taken a video! It was too precious.
The 5k follows at ~5:45pm. It is run along bike paths in Northfield, and again, costumes are encouraged as there are prizes for top-dressed as well as overall and masters winners.
|Our Master’s winner from 2015!
(Someone else that has an “udderly fantastic” costume – awesome!)
Did I mention prizes? This year both the Brick Oven Bakery of Northfield and Run N Fun have generously donated gift certificates as well as random drawing items. The bakery will also be providing a ton of sweet treats for afterwards! Thank you to both businesses for your generosity!
|Yum. If you’ve been there before, you know what I’m talking about.
If you haven’t visited this bakery, you NEED TO!
What more could you ask for? A fun way to spend your Friday evening for the entire family, and easy way to get a workout in, lots of amazing bakery treats, and a chance at fabulous prizes… all for just $8 if you pre-register by October 21st! Plus… you can meet baby #2, who will likely be 2 weeks old!
So – don’t wait! Here’s the event and registration link!
|See you in a there!|
