The 10th Annual Headless Horseman 5k & Monster Mile is ready to get everyone in the Halloween Spirit!  Be one of the many costumed runners who race through the streets of Howell at night and into the shadows of Lakeview Cemetery!  This year the 10K will not be offered due to safety concerns, however, we will be offering a Monster Mile & 5K bundle!  The race will start and finish on State Street (North of Clinton near Church St.) in Downtown Howell. Round up your family and friends and come dressed as your favorite Halloween character.  On-site registrations, post race awards, and refreshments will be held on State Street.  Awards will go to overall Men’s, Women’s, and Master’s.  Age group awards to the top three places in each age and gender category in the 5K (age divisions based on age as of October 27, 2018). 

New this year will be an exclusive post race brew available at Downtown Howell's Aberrant Ales. Runners (5K and 1 mile) who opt in will receive a voucher at check-in for one beer and commemorative glass (TO BE USED THIS NIGHT ONLY).

Deadline to register and be guaranteed a t-shirt is Friday, October 12th.
