Start the spookiest day of the year at the Erie Regional Chamber & Growth Partnership's inaugural Eerie 5k Trail Race! It's sure to bring out all of the run happy ghosts and goblins in our community!

We'll be hitting the trails at the beautiful Pleasant Ridge Park in Girard PA. Our start/finish will be at the pavilion where you can warm up around the fire and refuel with some Fuhrman's cider and donuts!

The route is primarily trails and fields in and around the park, but may include a short distance on the road. It will be unique, challenging and have lots of turns! This will be a timed race, so every runner will receive a number at check in. Runners will have the option to receive a custom Eerie 5K t-shirt, designed by Erie Apparel!  T-shirts are a limited supply.

Most importantly...costumes are encouraged! It is Halloween after all! We'll have 2 prizes to give out - best costume for the guys and best for the gals!
