HENDERSONVILLE — This Halloween, a ghoulish parade will set out into the dark depths of DuPont Forest in the Second Annual DuPont Trick or Trail 5 Mile Run and One Mile Spooky Sprint Fun Run. As the only nighttime trail race around, this event is sure to impart lasting memories on participants for many Halloweens to come.

The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22 at Guion Farm at Dupont State Forest, 3045 Sky Valley Roadd, Hendersonville.

Runners will experience the beauty of DuPont Forest in a unique nighttime racing format. The only race of its kind in the region, participants will strap on headlamps and light up the night as they duke it out in the dusk. The twists and turns of DuPont’s famous trail system will dare them to push forward, not knowing what bogies and specters might lurk around each corner!

Headlamps are required for the event, and will be available for purchase online at time of registration. The One Mile Trick-or-Trail Fun Run will have Halloween theme, so it will be a great chance for kids and kids-at-heart alike to break in their costumes a day early!

The race is set to be capped at 300 participants, so interested runners are encouraged to secure their spots as soon as possible if they don’t want to miss out on the first edition of the event.
