The 10th Annual Heather L. Hurd 5K Spooktacular, presented by the Kent Schwab Allstate Agency, takes place Saturday, October 27, at Harford Community College.
On-site registration for the 5K takes place in the Susquehanna Center Auxiliary Gymnasium from 8 to 8:45 a.m., with the race starting at 9 a.m.
A Halloween-themed activities area, for children ages 10 and younger accompanied by an adult, will be open 8 to 10 a.m. It will feature bounce houses, crafts, face painting, a costume contest, pumpkin coloring and more.
Participants will also be able to meet costumed characters and have their photos taken in various vignette locations. In addition, children will have the opportunity to walk to stations within the activities area to pick up Halloween treats.
Other activities at the Spooktacular include displays from various vendors and organizations. TapSnap, a selfie photo booth, also will be on site for participants to use to capture the fun of the day.
Each 5K participant (who pre-registers by October 12) will receive a T-shirt, a magnetic photo frame and refreshments after the race. Awards will be presented based on age groups and final times.
The registration fee for the 5K race is $25 per person in advance (by noon on Thursday, October 25) and $30 at packet pickup and on race day. The cost for those under the age 18 and accompanied by a registered adult is $15 per person. Children 10 and under who want to participate in the race are free of charge but must register.
