Trick or Treat run planned in T. Falls
October 17, 2019
Trick or Treat, Move Your Feet, is the Thompson Falls Community Trails’ annual community event. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 19, for a festive Halloween themed 5K Run and 1-mile Fun Run/Walk, where all paces are welcome.
The event is a celebration of the scenic, user-friendly Thompson Falls trail system. Funds raised contribute toward general trail maintenance and future planning efforts. The event starts and ends at Northwestern Energy Power Park at the intersection of Maiden Ln and Pond St. The Powerhouse Loop Trail and the Clark Fork River will set the stage for the event route.
Registration is available online at http://www.RunWildMissoula.org until October 16 or starting at 10:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The 1-mile fun run is free and the 5K run is $12 online through 5:00 PM on October 16th. Race day registration for the 5K run is $15. Halloween themed socks (last year it was buffs) will be given to the first 50 5K registrants. All participants are encouraged to register online.
The 1-mile run begins at 11a.m. and the 5-K follows at 11:30 a.m. Participants and their families are encouraged to attend in costume. Participants are invited to a free barbecue at the Power Park sponsored by Harvest Foods and the U.S. Forest Service. Prizes and Halloween medals will be awarded to all participants of the fun run event. A costume contest will hail the winners of funniest, most creative and group costumes. In 2018, we saw potato heads and jailbirds run away with the costume contest. The first male/female 5K finishers will take home a seasonally appropriate prize, too!
The event is sponsored by local supporters including: Northwestern Energy, First Security Bank, The Sanders County Ledger, Clark Fork Valley Hospital, Rimrock Lodge, Elliott Realty and Goertzen Dental.
Thompson Falls Community Trails is organized exclusively with a not-for-profit purpose to enhance quality of life in the Thompson Falls area of Sanders County by building, maintaining, and improving trails that provide transportation ways, connectivity, and recreation opportunities.
