Do I have to register to participate in the 1km kids run?
Adults accompanying children on the 1 KM Kid’s Creepy K do not have to register, however, all participating children must register so that we know how many munchkins to expect and ensure each and every child has a “spook-tacular” night. Don’t forget that if you register everyone before October 1st your child will also get a cinch bag with their registration.
