It’s that time of year again - It’s Halloween and Madison is gearing up with spooky activities going on in town. One of the best ways for the whole family to celebrate this time of year is to take place in the Haunted Hustle Madison, an action-packed 2-day weekend celebrating Halloween.

It’s going to be taking place the weekend before Halloween so the kids won’t have to miss trick-or-treating. On October 24th-25th, celebrate this exciting holiday with an all day race expo and challenging half marathon. Here is a look at everything going on at this year’s Haunted Hustle in Madison.

What to Expect

Madison is celebrating the 6th Annual Summit Credit Union Haunted Hustle this year on Saturday, October 24th until Sunday, October 25th, 2015. This two-day Halloween weekend is packed full of races and activities that all ages can enjoy. The weekend still start with the all-day race expo and packet pickup on Saturday featuring a kid's race, 5K, 5K Stroller Derby and 10K after dusk falls. Afterwards, enjoy a post-race bonfire with s’mores and even live music.

Sunday morning is going to feature racers competing in an exciting challenge to test their abilities. They will be training for this challenging half-marathon which is 13.1 miles and full marathon of 26.2 miles. The weekend ends with a massive festival!

How do I attend?

The event is taking place at KEVA Sports Center in Middleton, Wisconsin including the races’ start and finish as well as the packet pickups. Kids can race at any age with a ¼ mile option for kids 4 and under, a ½ mile for ages 5-8 and 1 mile for ages 9-12. The 5K and 5K Stroller Derby is 3.1 miles on a fast, flat and wide route. The 10K is an evening race so they encourage glow in the dark costumes or to wear something neon.

The half marathon won’t have much traffic impact allowing for a safe course with minimal turns. It features bike paths and changes in scenery. The full 26.2 mile marathon is a favorite at this time of year because the fall sights are beautiful and the slight challenges for an experienced runner to appreciate.

The festival will end with beer, s’mores, music and more so bring your friends, kids and enjoy the fun! Park for free, arrive by 3:30pm on Saturday or 8am on Sunday and prepare to help a great cause by participating.
