Events begin at 8 am!
35,000 pieces of candy, 1,000 runners and walkers, hundreds of costumes, and a whole lotta FUN! Sound like a good time? Register now for our 16th annual Trek or Treat Event! There is an event for everyone: the 5K/10K Road Race, the mile-long unSpooky Sprint, or the Candy Mile for the kids! These family-friendly events will be held at Bass Pro Shops in Macon.
10K & 5K Run/Walk @ 8:00 am ($30): Trek or Treat will be held at Bass Pro Shops in Macon. Click HERE for directions to Bass Pro. The 5K & 10K begin at 8:00 am. Both courses are chip timed and all results will be handled by Event Tech Timing. The 5K is a lovely, scenic route that leaves Bass Pro and continues up New Forsyth Rd. into Monroe county and returns to Bass Pro. The 10K route follows the 5K route with an added 1 mile loop near the beginning of the course. We welcome runners of all stages, walkers, strollers and leashed dogs onto the course. We do ask that those walking or running with strollers remain toward the rear of the participants. Click HERE to view the 2021 Course Map!
*Please NOTE: ALL participants on both courses MUST register and pay the $30 registration fee. This includes all children who are participating. Those riding in strollers are exempt from registration fees. Children under age 13 only need to pay ONE registration fee! Their $30 entry fee covers their participation in the 5K or 10K as well as the Candy Mile.
unSpooky Sprint @ 8:30 am ($15): Not ready for a 5K/10K yet? Then run/walk in our mile-long unSpooky Sprint! Festive Halloween wear is encouraged as they race their way by cheering costumed fans. Their registration fee includes a Trek or Treat shirt and an official 2021 race bib. Each child will also receive entry to the Candy Mile!
Candy Mile @ 9:00 am ($12): Children under age 13 can join us for our exciting Candy Mile presented by Ambrose Pediatric Dentistry! Each registered child will receive a Trek or Treat shirt, a 2021 race bib, and a Jay’s HOPE candy bag. The Candy Mile begins at approximately 9:00am. At the sound of the horn, the children will begin to trick or treat down and back the 1 mile long route. They will make 40 stops along the way and gather hundreds of pieces of candy!! This course is designed for children under age 13. Each child must register to participate. Children under the age of 2 and adults do not need to register to walk alongside their trick or treaters, but will NOT receive a candy bag or a t shirt. If you would like your toddler to collect candy, please register them!
Ghost Runner ($25): T-Shirt Only: Support childhood cancer families AND sleep in on race day. Become a ghost runner and have one of our 2021 Trek or Treat Shirts mailed straight to your door.
Please plan to arrive early to park! Cars must enter from Bass Rd. and will be directed up Tracker Blvd. through the rear entrance to the parking lot. This route ensures a steady flow of traffic from both directions. Please follow the parking attendant’s directions as you enter Bass Pro. Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your race’s start time. There will be handicapped parking available near the front of Bass Pro. We expect over 900 participants, so please be patient with the parking situation. Help us alleviate issues by carpooling! Christ Chapel @ Sportstowne on Starcadia Blvd. has graciously opened their lots to us for overflow parking. Plan on meeting your friends there and coming over to Bass Pro in one vehicle. Thank you for your cooperation!
