Trick or Trot 5K and Halloween Candy Hunt

This Inaugural Event will take place beginning the morning of Saturday, October 23rd at the Apex Center.

  • Registration begins at 8:00 am.

  • Race begins at 9:00 am.

  • Halloween Candy Hunt begins at 10:15

  • If you desire, you can run the race virtually on either October 23rd or 24th.

Join the Apex Park and Recreation District Foundation for the inaugural Trick or Trot 5K!  Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are all welcome to join us for this Halloween celebration.  Dress in your Halloween best for a chance to win prizes in the costume contest.

There will be a separate 1-mile Trick or Trot Halloween Candy Hunt for kids 12 & under.  Kids can grab candy at our designated trick or trot stations along the 1-mile course.  Participants will need to register for this event specifically, as it is separate from the 5K race.  One parent/guardian is encouraged to join but does not need to register.

Registered running participants will receive a post-race breakfast, and a chance to win great prizes!  In addition, runners will receive a campfire mug and kids will get candy from the Halloween Candy Hunt.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Apex Park and Recreation District Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose purpose is to support Apex Park and Recreation District's efforts to deliver quality community recreation.
