The Annual Hunter Subaru Trick or Trail 5k & 1 Mile Spooky Sprint lets runners experience the beauty of DuPont Forest in a unique nighttime racing format.

The only race of its kind in the region, participants will strap on headlamps and light up the night as they duke it out in the dusk. The twists and turns of DuPont’s famous trail system will dare them to push forward, not knowing what bogies and specters might lurk around each corner! The One Mile Spooky Sprint will be Halloween themed, and a great chance for kids and kids-at-heart to break in their costumes a day early, without stressing about time limits, as this event is untimed!

This event is limited to 250 participants. 

“Tonight was the most fun I’ve had racing in a long time. The trail at night makes you feel so free. Thanks for a great race, and I love my pottery.”

Irollruns, 2016 participant

“Participants/volunteers very friendly!”

“Magical, light-hearted, exhilarating.”

“Spooky, dark, fun!”

“Challenging, unique, scenic.”

Words from participants

“Thanks for another awesome race. Hope this event will continue for a long time. It’s a blast and love celebrating Halloween with a nighttime sprint through the woods. Thanks to those who gave their time to make it happen!”

Stephanie Compton, 2016 participant
