Every Halloween from 1984 to 1992, Rhodes Hall became the perfect setting for one of Atlanta's most popular haunted houses. Today its haunted atmosphere has given way to sparkling interior and exterior details, and although Rhodes Hall won't be dressed up as a haunted house, that doesn't stop us from getting into the Halloween spirit (nor does it stop our resident ghost from appearing)!

Mark your calendars for Saturday morning, October 28, 2017, and bring your whole family to the Uptown Rhodes Race at the Haunted Castle. This dog and stroller friendly 5K will wind through the creepy twists and ghoulish hills of one of Atlanta's oldest and boo-tiful neighborhoods, Ansley Park. Feel free to run or walk in your best Halloween costume!

Afterwards join us at the hair-raising after-party at Rhodes Hall for a costume contest, food and prizes. You can even take a self-guided tour inside our "haunted castle," and who knows, maybe you'll get a glimpse of our resident apparition.

Here's what's in store:

  • Scenic course through historic Ansley Park
  • Exciting hair-raising after-party
  • Costume contest
  • Delicious barbecue sandwiches and treats
  • Great prizes
  • Awesome t-shirt and goodie bag

Dogs are welcome to join you during the race
The course is stroller and dog friendly (just as long as your pooch is well-behaved, leashed, and under your control at all times). There will be a special "pet pit stop" along the race route to provide dogs with drinking water. Dogs and their runners will also have their own special start group.

Exciting post-race party with lunch and refreshments
After the race, stick around for a huge post-race party on the lawn of Rhodes Hall featuring a delicious lunch, refreshing drinks and great music. All participants will receive a t-shirt and goodie bag. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male/female finishers, top 3 male/female finishers in each age group, first participant with a stroller and first dog.
