Entering the Fall Costume Contest is free and automatic with race registration; just wear a family-friendly costume throughout the race. Here are a few tips for competing: 

  • Individuals registering for the race are encouraged to dress in costume
  • Or, enter the 5K with family members, friends or club members and dress in costumes with a group theme.
  • Only race participants are eligible for the Fall Costume Contest.
  • Only family-friendly costumes may be worn, and the costumes must stay in place for the length of the race.
  • In general, the more imaginative the costume, the better. Costumes should be based on fall themes such as the season, fall holidays and fall celebrations.
