What is the Halloween 5K?
The Moraine Valley Health, Fitness & Recreation Center will be hosting the 4th 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.

The race will be chip timed by Cross Roads Events, LLC and t-shirts will be given to participants that pre-register for the race.

The scenic USATF-IL certified course takes you around and through the Moraine Valley campus paved trail. For a map of the route, click here.

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, pumpkin decorating, face painting, Halloween activities, mummy race, trunk-or-treating, and more.

Children’s 1K Race
For children 5-12 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.
