Missoula loves a 5K any time of year. And we also love those little Snickers bars and tiny bags of Skittles in October. We can offset the candy consumption a little with a run coming up on Sunday, October 24th. And if the weather doesn't change too much by then, it should be a pretty nice Sunday for a 5K!

Run Wild Missoula presents the Skeleton Skedaddle & Pumpkin Plod, the Skedaddle being the 5K and the Plod for the kids. Registration for the 5K is $15 by October 17th, $17 after. The 400-meter kids run is FREE for ages 12 and under. This year runners have the option of getting race swag and a t-shirt, which this race hasn't offered in the past, so that's a fun new addition!

Proceeds from this event will be donated to University of Montana's Physical Therapy Student Association to assist students with opportunities to enhance their educational experience.  Participants can also make an optional donation during registration to further help support this organization.

5K age divisions are as follows: 14 and Under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+ with prizes for overall winner, top female, and top male. The kids run will begin at 10 a.m. on the 24th at Silver Park, with the 5K start time at 10:25 a.m. Register for fall family fun here.

Other fun Halloweenie stuff we're looking forward to includes carving Pumpkins for the Pov, checking out overnight ghost hunts at the Old MT State Prison, Haunted Prom, creeping around spooky places, and taking the kids to see decorated houses.
