This race takes place on the beautiful grounds of the Flagstaff Nordic Village, so please be respectful of it’s natural beauty, and treat it with respect.
You may run into a few ghouls or ghosts out there on the trail, or around the village, so be prepared! The Mogollon Monster himself may even make an appearance!
The 5k will take place at twilight as the sun is setting, so personal illumination is REQUIRED. This can include a headlamp, belly light, knuckle lights, flashlight, but DOES NOT include your cell phone light. Come see us at Run Flagstaff if you’re in need of illumination.
The best part of this run is the after party! The fun won’t stop after the 5k, join us for beer, food, and snacks around a campfire at the Flagstaff Nordic Village. There’s no better way to celebrate a great race on a beautiful fall evening, than by sitting by a campfire and roasting s’mores! We will provide all the necessities for a perfect post-race s’more.
We plan on having some games and activities for the whole family: bobbing for apples, lasso practice, and others. We'll also have some yard games set up like spike ball, corn hole, and ladder ball.
Walkers are encouraged! This course can be enjoyed by walkers and runners of all abilities. We just ask that you be able to complete the course within one hour. This will allow to enjoy the post 5k festivities!
