We are excited to let you know that the 2018 Monster Dash is back at the Ontario Science Centre, if you attended in 2017 the same, large, cool indoor spaces in the back of the building (lower section beside Sunnybrook Park). 

Run/walk routes will course through adjacent Wilket Creek and Sunnybrook Park trails as in the past.  The Post Event party is INDOORS, so now you can comfortably change after the run into your second costume......(:


BIG WELCOME BACK OUR OFFICIAL CHARITY PARTNER

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Hospital

You can start fundraising NOW Monsters and also soon we'll announce great fundraising options and incentives too.


  


What is Monster Dash ?

Monster Dash consists of a Spooky Mile for kids and families under 12, and a chip-timed 5km & 10km run / walk for young adults and those young at heart.  Bring your friends & family, walk/jog/crawl your child down the Spooky Mile for some trick or treating and then finish with your own cheering squad at the end of your run!   Mom, Dad, and the Ghoulish Entourage are encouraged to also Dress Up and you can buy a Family Plan meal so you don't have to rush home for dinner.

 Join in the Halloween theme and come “dressed for costume success” to win top Ghoul for a chance at additional prizing! Spooky Mile kids will receive finisher's ribbons, a swag bag and are welcome to join in on the post-run fun later in the evening!


    BACK in 2018 - MONSTER SWAG!

"sick", amazing, cool, call it what you want, these are going to be the MOST sought after finishing medals anywhere in Canada! You have to finish to open the coffin and see what's inside.....hint, 2017 was the Skeleton and in 2018 its a different character.

The 2018 Runner's gift is a Cool, Functional and Versatile Head Scarf (or, Buff as some people call it....below is NOT the actual item its a really bad replica for now)....

 


AGAIN THIS YEAR, 

The 13 Days of Halloween are BACK.  

"on the 13th day of Halloween a goblin sent to me......"

Calling all Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins!
