Race Information

The Monster Mash 5k/10k & Kids K takes place at the beautiful Sam Houston Race Park northwest of downtown just off the Sam Houston Parkway (Beltway 8) access/feeder road. In 2012 the event incorporated the 1-mile horse track into the USA Track & Field Certified 5k/10k Courses, making the event one of the most unique runs in the city. Not only do runners get to run on the 1-mile packed dirt horse track, but since it's a Halloween themed run most runners dress up in their favorite costume as well.

Come and join us in this awesome event!


Course Information

Both the 5k/10k follow the same route completing 1.5 loops on the track before exiting onto the paved roads of Fairbanks. From there runners journey around the park on the surrounding paved roads. The 5k runners turn into the park early leaving the 10k runners to complete a full loop around the area before following the same path back into the park some time later.
