Bring your whole family to the race!

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, but that doesn’t stop us from getting into the Halloween spirit!

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 for a costume contest 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. All fitness levels welcome!

Strollers and 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. Participants with strollers and dogs will also have their own special start group.
