- 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.
