Enjoy a night run in nature on the Root River Trail, lit by luminaries. Each participant will receive a reusable lighted bracelet to wear as well as a T-shirt featuring the Hoot Scoot logo.

Participants are encouraged to wear an owl costume or owl clothing during the run. Everyone who does will receive a special treat, and the person with the best costume will receive an award.

There will also be photo opportunities with our owl mascot, Hooston.

Expect owl-themed refreshments at the finish.

Children will enjoy the Natural Playground in Trailhead Park where the race starts and ends, with its hand water pump, embankment slide, caves and tunnel, fossils, boulders, stumps and more.

Awards will be presented in the following age categories:

Under 13, 13-20, 21-40, and 41 and over

Cost is $25 for the 5K and $20 for the 1-mile Fun Run if you register by October 9. After that date the registration fees are $30 and $25 respectively, and we cannot guarantee a T-shirt.

The race will be held rain or shine. Since this is a fundraiser, there will be no refunds.
