  2019 FIRM RACE CAPACITY

5k - 950

10k - 600

Spooky Mile - 500

Friends and Family Packages (Meal Plans)- 200

 

BACK IN THE COOL INDOOR SPACE.............Boo!

  


We are excited to let you know that the 2019 Monster Dash is back at the Ontario Science Centre, if you attended in 2017 or 2018 the large, cool indoor spaces where you can escape a cool late fall winter night, or if the dark scares you outside.....

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......(:



 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!


    NEW in 2019 - The Tough Pumpkin!

That's right, in addition to the chance to WIN a FREE, ONE YEAR No strings attached 12 month LEASE on a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited....you can now up the ante' on your 5k or 10k run/walk and CARRY a pumpkin (reasonable size folks) for extra fun, and prizing!

The 2019 Runner's gift is still to be determined....voting comes soon....but you can buy any of the Cool, Functional and Versatile Head Scarves from last year, or the Lucky Finisher Coins that were a hit in Year #1, or the amazing Monster Bottle Openers' that every kitchen would be incomplete withou.  Miles' loves swag...and so do you....

 



Calling all Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins! 

The spooky starting line is waiting for YOU! 

Volunteers Wanted!


EMAIL us if you are a Zombie.....Ghost, Ghoul or other (insert scary character here) wanting to volunteer and put your dress up skills to the test!   admin@goodtimesrunning.ca
