Run Scared at the Wilkes Halloween 5K

The Halloween 5K, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 21, is a run/walk along the levee trail in Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. This fundraiser for the Geo-explore Club features three categories for participants: competitive runners, non-competitive runners, and walkers. The first wave of runners starts at 2 p.m.

All runners and walkers have the opportunity to win awards for their costumes as they cross the finish line. The five costume category awards include: 1) hardest to run in, 2) scariest, 3) funniest, 4) best group costume, and 5) judge's choice. 

T-shirts are first come, first serve.
