Mason Youth Baseball will be sponsoring a “Frightening Fun Run” that will take place on Sunday, October 28th at the Mason School Track. This will be a fun family event with prizes for all who finish the course “in good health”.
The “Frightening Fun Run” is a family oriented haunted run that brings our Mason community together promoting a healthy and active life while celebrating the season in style. Participants join in the fun with two main events, one event for younger families and children beginning at 5:30 PM and another event that will test the courage of those brave enough to complete the course in the dark beginning at 6:30 PM. The cost will be $5 for participants that are 6th grade and under and $8 for participants that are 7th grade and older. All community members are welcomed to participate. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by filling out forms located at both the Elementary and High School offices.
As the day turns to night the run transforms into an unforgettable fright fest. Younger participants attempt to survive a 3 mile course filled with wiggle woos, ghostly creatures and forest frighteners, while older participants will face hungry, blood-thirsty, bone-crushing creatures guaranteed to frighten. Before the race, participants will be given flags and these flags will represent a runner’s “health” during the run. The nighttime creatures scattered along the course want to steal participant’s flags. Runners are encouraged to use different strategies throughout the trail to keep in good “health”, such as bring allies to help protect you from the creatures or outrun them. Health bonuses (flags) will be hidden throughout the course and runners can take the flags for extra “health”. Runners crossing the finish line in “good health” will receive a TREAT.
All participants need to arrive 30 minutes before their event at the Mason School Track. Participants may dress in costumes, wear head torches, or bring glow sticks. Volunteers will be scattered along the trail for guidance and support. It’s a truly unique and exciting fun run you wouldn’t want to miss!
