The 5th annual Halloween Hustle 5K/10K takes place on a scenic, paved-trail course during the peak of autumn. It starts on the east end of Covington City Park and, loops north, proceeds directly west on the beautiful wooded trail. The trail is relatively flat and because it is an out and back, you will gain momentum toward your finish. You finish the last half mile running past the soccer fields (where you began) with music motivating you to cross the finish line. The event also includes family entertainment, a FREE Kid's Fun Run, activities, food, and more!
