Registration Is Open for the Freaky Friday 8K Run on Halloween Night
The annual Freaky Friday 8K run will take place on Halloween, October 31st with a start time of 9pm and this year, gets a change of venue!
Don't worry, you won't have to travel out of town or learn a new course if you've ran this one before. They're just moving the start/finish line from the now closed Wintzel's to Dreamland Barbecue, right next door at 101 Bridge Avenue in Northport. The course will remain the same as in year's past.
Well over 100 runners will participate in this yearly event that benefits the Alabama State Trooper’s Association. Racers will travel a few miles worth of road behind Dreamland before going under the bridge and onto the small river road heading toward the water treatment plant. They’ll then turn around and go back the way they came! At total of 5.2 miles worth of cool, darkly lit running.
Proceeds benefit a life insurance fund for Alabama state troopers.
You can register tonight at Dreamland BBQ in Northport starting at 7:30pm. For anyone competing in the costume contest, judging will begin at 8:30pm so you'll have time to change back in to your running clothes.
