If you live in an apartment in Garner, NC, it is time to get off the couch. The Town of Garner announces the annual “White Deer Monster Dash and Family Fun Run,” to be held on Oct. 29.
The Annual White Deer Dash 5K race is back! Prizes will be given for each age category. Runners dress up in your best Halloween costume for a chance to win a ghoulish prize. All 5K runners will receive a FREE T-shirt. The race begins at 4 p.m. on Buffaloe Road and ends in Lake Benson Park. Awards will be given after the last runner has finished. Registration fee is $30 before Oct. 14 or $35 after Oct. 14.
After the 5K, bring the family out for our 1-mile “Family Fun Run,” which starts at 5 p.m. in Lake Benson Park. Participants will have to trick or treat their way through this 1-mile course. Participants can have extra fun by dressing up for Halloween! Shirts may be purchased the day of the event. The first 50 kids are FREE; the registration fee for other participants is $10.
The fun doesn’t stop at the races. Participants can stick around for “Goblins in the Park,” which starts at 6 p.m. in Lake Benson Park. Visitors can take part in the Halloween costume contest, walk through the “Trail of Terror” and “Hollow’s Eve Family Trail”, and enjoy hayrides and other fun activities.
