Register for the 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. The 5K 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, as judged by Wilkes professors, will include: 1) hardest to run in, 2) scariest, 3) funniest, 4) best group costume, and 5) judge's choice.  

Participants will receive t-shirts, but t-shirts are not guaranteed after Oct. 13.
