    I signed up for this race specifically for the medal, and what a lovely, hefty medal it is (see photo)! Different medals for the 10k and 5k but both are heavy, feature Miles the mascot monster and are bottle openers.

    Race kit pick-up was at the Vitapath store in Leaside, and the kit included a Leslie Jordan brand unisex long-sleeved hoodie, food samples and a Halloween-themed tote bag.

    A fun race, but some sections are quite dark so a flashlight or headlamp is a must. The 5k course winds around the hospital parking lot twice, becoming very narrow in some sections, and with many costumed children and strollers on the course, a PR is impossible.

    Each racer got a finisher’s gift of a Brooks unisex short-sleeved technical tee in a fabric cinch-bag. Sizes were first-come, first-served, but that’s okay.

    A plus was the indoor washrooms and an indoor venue – the hospital cafeteria – for the post-race party. The post-race food included water, pizza (pepperoni or cheese), apples, bananas, potato chips, mini rice cakes (Crispy Minis), and granola bars. The atmosphere was fun, with almost all racers in costume and right into the Halloween spirit.

    A bit tough to get out of the hospital parking lot because everyone was exiting at the same time, but aside from that, it was a thoroughly enjoyable night race.

    (Note: no official race photographer. If you want pictures, remember to bring your camera.)
