Terror in the Glen 5K, 10K and Half Marathon
Glenwood City, WI
Oct. 18, 2014
With Halloween around the corner, this festive, family-friendly run offers a variety of distances and challenges on grassy prairie trails and forested singletrack. Beautiful lake views and vistas abound. Costumes are welcome, the long-sleeve race shirts are stellar (in the words of race director Bob Heise, “I have competed in a lot of races and have an entire closet full of event shirts, but, in my opinion, this might be the coolest shirt I may ever own”) and winners receive homemade baked goods and jams. What’s not to love?
