2013 Crosslake Monster Dash 5K Run/Walk and Spooktacular Children’s Halloween Party set for Oct. 26
Web posted October 22, 2013
The 4th annual Crosslake Monster Dash 5K is scheduled for Saturday, October 26th at the Crosslake Community Center. This year’s run will feature chip timing by Karma Race Management. The Monster Dash is the only 5K to offer free childcare (4-10 year olds) during the race.
The course will give runners a great chance to set new personal records as the terrain is flat and fast, you will also witness some of the best costumes for the Halloween season. Participants and volunteers display a wide variety of costumes and there is the chance for many prizes.
This year’s Premiere Sponsors include Moonlite Bay, Crosslake Drug and the PAL Foundation. We would also like to thank Clow Stamping, Whitefish Lodge and Suites, Brainerd Lakes Chamber, BL Broadcasting, Road ID and the Northland Press, Lake County Echo and the Brainerd Dispatch.
The day will get under way at 8:30 when registration begins. At 9:30 the children’s Spirit Sprint will begin. The Spirit Sprint is an amazingly fun children’s race that is designed for 4-10 year olds. At 9:45 the supervised children’s program opens its doors inside the Center where many fun activities will be offered to the children while parents participate in the Dash. At 10:15 the Monster Dash will begin.
The event features both walkers and runners and is a great way to start your Halloween weekend. Registrants for the Monster Dash will receive a long sleeved shirt, refreshments and the chance to win fabulous prizes from local businesses.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Park and Library Foundation of Crosslake (PAL) which is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit who supports parks, recreation and library services for the greater Crosslake area.
Last year participants came from all over the state to take part in this unique event. Prizes for best costumes and race divisions will be offered. Starting Oct. 22, Registration will be $30. Registration for the children’s Spirit Sprint is $20. Children who register for the Spirit Sprint will receive a long sleeved shirt, refreshments, candy and lots of laughter during the event. Registration for the kids does not include the 5K race. If children would like to participate in both the 5K and the Spirit Sprint they must register in the adult division.
Participants for the race had a blast last year and we expect this year to be no different. “Like us” on Facebook to have the chance to receive discounts and prizes before the event.
