Hardy Girls Healthy Women want to bring scary back! Join them for 6th annual Freaky 5K Fun Run and Walk, Sunday (Oct. 26) at Colby College in Waterville.

This annual event aims to raise awareness of the sexualizing of girls' costumes and to return kids to the spirit and wholesome scariness of the Halloween holiday. Runners, walkers and kids are encouraged to wear their scariest and most creative costumes for a costume contest and to participate!

Adult awards are given out for Scariest Costume, Most Creative Costume, Best Team Costume (5 or more), and Top Fundraiser! Kids' awards go to Scariest Costume, Most Creative Costume and Best Family Theme.

Check-in begins at 9 a.m. in the Colby Field House in the Harold Alfond Athletic Center. The Kids' Fun Run and costume contest will be held at 9:30 a.m. The Adult costume contest will be held at 10 a.m. with the 5k race starting at 10 a.m. We look forward to seeing your scariest and most creative costumes!
