    This is a Halloween themed evening race in Hamlin which is about 30 minutes from Rochester. The race is in the evening and volunteers dress up like zombies and chase and spook the runners. It is a really cool concept and I do think the race was really well-decorated but I did not like the course. I got my packet the day of the race. Also includes green cotton T-shirt which is fine. I didn’t realize until I arrived that the majority of the race was on grass in the park. I am not a huge fan of running on grass especially in the evening when it is already harder to watch your footing. The course consists of two loops in the park. The first loop was marked with red flags and the second loop with blue flags. It was kind of a confusing course though for the most part well marked at least in day light. There is also a 1.5 mile walk that is just the red loop. I had no problem following the red loop at all but I was running very carefully since it was grass and now that my foot is finally healed and I am at close to usual speed the last thing I wanted to do was injure myself. The course while a boring course in the park was amazingly decorated. Almost the entire course had halloween decorations. And it was fun having the volunteers chasing us and spooking us. It was also cute to see kids in costume doing the walk. They had these funny lines of scary things but instead of actual horror items it was things like “student loans” and “laundry” and it made me laugh. It got a little dark the second loop and the blue flags were a bit difficult to see in the dark. I one timed veered off route but a zombie chased me the right direction. I also noticed with the not as straight forward course many people purposefully cutting the course or accidentally cutting the course. It was advertised as around a 5K. When I finished I ran 2.9 miles. I am not sure if the course was slightly short or I missed a few flags. Not a huge deal but it takes away some sneakers from production. My time was fine. I took it very easy and finished under 40 minutes and did not get injured. I was disappointed with post race snacks as I was starving since I had to eat a light lunch to do an evening race and there was only apples. Overall I thought this race was okay. I do commend them on the decorations and it’s a fun idea. I just really don’t like running on grass. This will probably be a one time race for me. If I do it again I will probably just do the 1.5 mile walk.
