The Bethlehem 5k is creeping up on us this weekend! Race along the annual Halloween Parade route just before the bands begin to march, as thousands of spectators in historic downtown Bethlehem cheer you on!

REGISTER NOW! Race is limited to 400 runners and it’s filling up fast. Fees are $25 if you order them now. Race day registration will also be $25 and will open at 10am at the packet pick up and registration table on Main Street next to the City’s bandshell, placed between Market and Walnut Streets. Runners can register at the packet pick-up times (see below.) Register online or pick up a form at Aardvark Sports Shop.

If you wanna take a practice run before the big race, here’s what the course looks like! 

 Runners are strongly encouraged to run in costume, those who do can be entered in these contests! Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

– Best couple or group costume
– Best look alike
– Most in-character runner
– Scariest
– Funniest
– Costume most difficult to run in

Costumes will be judged at 12:30pm at the City’s bandshell, placed between Market and Walnut Streets. If you would like your costume judged, please gather there a few minutes before 12:30. Prizes will be awarded following the race at the awards ceremony.

So get working on your costume and make sure it’s easy to run in, unless of course you’re trying to win the most difficult category!
