If you are looking for great exercise, community involvement, and a way to make new friends this fall in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake City movers recommend signing up for one of the city’s Halloween themed fall marathons.
Dawn, Day and Night of the Running Dead is a family friendly zombie-themed 5K, in which humans get a two-minute start before those dressed up as the undead chase after them. This takes place in Farmington on October 22 at the Andy Ballard Equestrian Park.
Put your speed, endurance, and strength to the test at the 5K Run Dead, hosted at the Salt Lake City Community College. Runners carry flags to represent their health, while zombies throughout the course try to steal them from you. Succeed to the finish line with your health flags or become one of the walking dead.
The Dirty Dash Mud Run, known as “the filthiest way to get fit”, takes place in Soldier Hollow Salt Lake City on September 17. This race features mud pits, slip ‘n slides, and foam baths.
For another half marathon, Salt Lake City movers suggest you sign up for Dracula’s Dash for Hope at Riverfront East Park on October 8. It also features a smaller course for children to join in on the fun.
To get into the Halloween spirit, sign up for the Haunted Hustle at Sugar House Park. Known as the scariest 5k you will ever run, this race features a zombie graveyard, foggy forest, and a “tunnel of terror”. For those who make it out of these fall marathons alive, your Salt Lake City movers announce that there is a costume party with a DJ and giveaways right after the Haunted Hustle. It takes place on October 22, and kids are welcome!
Each one of these fall marathons donates a portion of their proceeds to charity.
