In 2017 Trek or Treat celebrates it’s 12th year in Oakville at the St. Volodymyr Cultural Centre. Trek or Treat is more than just a run. It’s a Halloween tradition! Hundreds of runners, walkers and their families don their costumes to enjoy our 5KM or family-friendly Creepy Mile events, followed by a haunting evening of Halloween-themed activities. It’s a race, it’s a fun run, it’s a festival, it’s a party!
The 5KM run is our flagship event. Runners, joggers and walkers take to Oakville’s darkened trails wearing costumes and donning headlamps or holding flashlights to light their way. Pumpkin kilometre markers glow along the route, and participants get to take in Halloween displays and decorations along the way. This year's "Friday the 13th Edition" theme will feature scary haunters on course and commemorative medals for all finishers! Cross the finish line and come inside to enjoy free pizza, hot chocolate and more! Age suggestions for this event.
The family-friendly Creepy Mile is designed with kids in mind and is scheduled so that 5KM runners can do the event with their families. The one-mile route is decorated with huge, glowing Halloween inflatables and features a mid-way candy station! All kids receive a ribbon at the end, along with pizza and hot chocolate inside. Come early and enjoy free face painting, balloon animals, free (professional) family photos, a magician and more! Age suggestions for this event.
