Join us for a hauntingly good time at the 13th annual Trek or Treat 5KM Night Run & Creepy Mile. Weave your way through Oakville, Ontario’s haunted trails, where the only light ahead is from your headlamp and our haunting displays! Wear your costume and tackle our 5-kilometre trail run or family-friendly Creepy Mile. Finish the night off with pizza, hot chocolate and tons of candy at the indoor after-party. Medals for all 5KM finishers and ribbons for Creepy Mile kids. Bring a canned food donation and help us reach our goal of 1,500 pounds of food raised in support of the Oakville Fare Share Food Bank. Visit our website for full event details and answers to frequently asked questions. The 5KM run is our flagship event. Runners, joggers and walkers take to Oakville’s darkened trails wearing costumes and donning headlamps or holding flashlights to light their way. Pumpkin kilometre markers glow along the route, and participants get to take in Halloween displays and decorations along the way. All finishers receive a commemorative race medal for their efforts. Cross the finish line and come inside to enjoy free pizza, hot chocolate and more! The family-friendly Creepy Mile is designed with kids in mind and is scheduled so that 5KM runners can do the event with their families. The one-mile route is decorated with huge, glowing Halloween inflatables and features a mid-way candy station! All kids receive a ribbon at the end, along with pizza and hot chocolate inside. Come early and enjoy free face painting, balloon animals, free (professional) family photos, a magician and more!
