  • 10a – Thriller 5k begins
  • 11a – Costume Contest
  • 11:15a – Mini Monk Run begins

THRILLER 5K

The 5k course is an awesome mix of terrain! There will be a few creek crossings, come technical climbs and descents, as well as a bit of grassy terrain...overall, a very good mix! It’s a great course for those new to trail running, but also challenging enough for the seasoned trail runner.

There will be one aid station at the turn-around point. You can view the course map below.

MINI MONK RUN

The Mini Monk course is a great introduction to trail running for the next generation of trail maniacs! It will be a .75 mile trail with some wider sections, muddy sections, and grassy sections. All of our Mini Monkers will finish under the Muddy Monk archway!

We will have course marshals and photographers along the way to make sure our Mini Monkers have an amazing trail experience (parents are also welcome to run with their Mini Monkers for free!). You can view the course map below.
