Number of Places : Unlimited

The Screaming Pumpkin Marathon is an atmospheric race, in the dark, through Springdale Cemetery. It is a four-person relay, each team member running 6.55 miles. Costumed runners are very much encouraged!

This race differs from most in that the winner is not the first to finish, but the person or team who finishes closest to midnight without going over.

Screaming Pumpkin Marathon Route
The race takes place in Springdale Cemetery, one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in the state. It is the resting place of over 78,000 local citizens.

The route is very hilly and is described and possibly the hilliest race you will ever run. However the majority of the race is run on paved streets and paths. The whole route will be lined with over 5,000 glow sticks.
