Trick or Trail 5k

October 17 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Annual Trick or Trail 5k & 1 Mile Spooky Sprint is a Halloween-themed, in-person running event that will take place at Kanuga near Asheville in Hendersonville, NC on October 17, 2020.

This family-friendly, fall 5k is an annual Halloween-themed running event, which usually takes place at DuPont Forest, was moved due to no events being permitted this fall at DuPont. The 5k race will now take place on trails at the Kanuga Conference Center, which offers 1,400 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a 30-acre lake, 20 miles of hiking trails and Ride Kanuga, a brand new mountain biking park. The trails are located close to Hendersonville and near Asheville, which makes this spot convenient for locals and a spectacular fall weekend destination for runners and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Trick or Trail 5K and Spooky Sprint 1 Mile has been a local favorite for many years. Kids and parents especially love this race because of its Halloween theme. The 5k course is run entirely through the wooded campus and includes a beautiful loop around the sparkling Kanuga Lake. The course offers a mixture of single track trail and gravel, paved, dirt and grass roads and paths through Kanuga property near Asheville, NC. The total elevation gain is approximately 200 feet, which makes this event appealing to all abilities of runners.

The iDaph team will be offering up decorations and candy to go along with the Halloween festivities, and children are welcome to “trick-or-treat” along the trail during the 1 Mile walk or run. The 1 Mile is untimed and starts early in the day, so parents and/or guardians don’t need to stress about losing daylight.
