Racing Attire, Costumes, and Etiquette

Every hero puts on their super underwear and parades around town; we want you to do the same. Dress-up or dress down, but be sure you express yourself! We also ask that you comply with the Ohio Revised Code 2907.09 on Public Indecency and cover your "private parts." No racer will be allowed to participate in our event if they are in violation of this law. We suggest you wear no less than you would to the beach and no more than you would to fight off Evil Villains or to secure some Halloween Candy! Super, spooky, scary, sophisticated, satirical, and stealthy costumes are encouraged but not required! And do remember this is a family friendly event.


Costume Contest
  • Racing is more fun in a costume! So, dress up and express yourself around our race theme. We want to see your best creativity! 
  • The Spooky Super Underwear Run's costume contest has two categories: Spooky and Super. Extra points for creatively assembled outfits (not store-bought costumes). Our first place winners from each category will win a Noxgear Tracer 360 vest for safe running in low visibility.
  • Judging takes place at 2:30 p.m. at the start/finish line before the start of the race.

Timed Races Offered

  • 1-Mile, 5k, 10k & Beast 3-Race Challenge to Run all 3 Races (10.3 Miles)
