We don’t require you pay for your child if they are in a stroller for our race, but kindly ask that children then do not receive any goods at trick or treat street and also won’t be issued a t-shirt for the event. With the event be charity driven, we try to ask ALL participants to pay but don’t require it.

With the Scream Scram event directly supporting Boys & Girls Clubs charities, we cannot offer refunds.  If you are unable to attend, you may contact us to see about transferring your registration.

Are dogs allowed in the Scream Scram?

We are a K9 friendly race. However, we ask they be leashed, well-mannered and “stranger friendly” as we will be having several individuals, including children around the race.

Can friends and family come and be spectators?

We absolutely support families and friends to come support the runners. However, we ask those that don’t participate to take advantage of the trick or treat portion as this area is meant for racers only.

We have three water stations available, located at registration, on the course, and one at the finish line. No food or beverages will be provided other than water prior to Trick or Treat Street, our post event party.

The shirt size I selected doesn't fit, can I exchange?

We realize this happens.  You will be given the shirt size you signed up for when you pick up your packet. You may, depending upon availability, exchange your shirt in the post event expo area after you run/walk.  [/learn_more] [learn_more caption="Race Results"]Results will be available live during the event.
