Get your spook on at Haunted Halloween Obstacle Run

Saturday, Oct. 18 at 5 p.m. — BENSON — Shale Hill Adventure Farm in Benson offers a Haunted Halloween Obstacle Run, 5K or 10K options, with over 50 obstacles and challenges to get your spook on as you dash through the woods evading the great pumpkin. Capes are not permitted on the course, but feel free to wear them for picture opportunities before or after the race.

There are two heats only; one at 5 p.m. and one at 5:15 p.m. Chase down the ghosts, pick up candy along the way and have a great time. Headlamps are suggested as it gets close to dark. Participants are invited to join the after-party bonfire and pot-luck supper.

If interested, contact Shale Hill by emailing, to make plans for a dish to pass, enough for 20 people. Spectators are welcome for $10 and can join in as long as they bring a dish to pass. Registration is required for the after-party (participants and spectators). BYOB by the campfire, and make sure to bring a change of “costume” and shoes for apres-race. Finisher medals and t-shirts will be on hand for all participants. There are great local prizes for men’s, women’s and master’s (50+), as well as a prize for best costume.

Water stations, bananas, and chocolate milk are on hand for all participants. Parking is free.
