What is the Halloween 5K?
The Moraine Valley Health, Fitness & Recreation Center will be hosting the 5th annual Halloween 5K/1K run/walk in conjunction with the Moraine Valley Foundation. Open to the Moraine Valley campus and community, this race donates all proceeds to the Moraine Valley Foundation which provides need-based scholarships to students including FitRec employees. By participating, you can make a difference in the lives of students by helping them afford a college education. Because it is Halloween, costumes are encouraged. Strollers are allowed on the course.
Packet Pick-Up scheduled for Friday, Oct. 27 from 3-7 p.m. at Moraine Valley Community College Health, Fitness and Recreation Center (Building H), 9000 W. College Parkway, Palos Hills, IL 60465
Little Pumpkin’s Patch
Free children’s activities supervised by FitRec youth programming staff while you run/walk. Free family activities during and after the race. Activities include: Bounce house, Halloween arts and crafts and piñatas.
For children 3-12 years old, we have our Children’s 1K race (registration required). This route takes you through Moraine Valley’s campus. For a map of the route, click here.
