Ghostly Gallop 5K/10K/Mile Run and Walk: A Run the ‘Hood Virtual Race

We’ve got a big announcement for you today! One that only comes twice each year! We’ve been busy brainstorming and planning the next big Run the ‘Hood event and it’s going to be an awesome one, for sure! Mark your calendars, October 27th is the big day, and registrations start RIGHT NOW!

It’s time to lace up your shoes for a SPOOKTACULAR event, and get ready to get your ghoul on! The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans Virtual race – Run the ‘Hood – is going scary with the Ghostly Gallop 5K and 10K walk and run! We thought it would be fantastic to donate a portion of our proceeds to charity -so this year we are giving 10% to the Susan G. Komen foundation, as October is breast cancer awareness month.

Other FAQs:

When will I get my race tee? Race tees will mailed out in time for you to wear on race day! We are hoping to do the same with the finisher’s medals; if not, they will arrive 2-3 weeks after the race. **international participants tees/medals/swag cannot be guaranteed to arrive before race day. Sorry.

What will they look like? The shirts will be eerily amazing! A super soft tri-blend tee with ghostly graphics! Women -SIZE UP! They tend to run small! Men’s are true to size! Youth and 3XL shirts will be 100% cotton.


When does registration end? Registration will end on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013. Why so much earlier than race day? See below!

Can I register late? Nope. Sorry. Once registration is closed, it’s closed. We need to get the t-shirt order into the printers so that everyone can get their tees in time for race day!

Can I order extra tees? Yes! You will want more than one. They are that awesome. Each extra shirt will be $18.

What about race results? After you finish your race, we will have a form to fill out with your race distance and time! Results will be separated into age brackets and published the following week!

Age brackets: Men’s and Women’s will be separate, ages as follows:

60 and over:
12 and under

I live for race bling, please tell me I will get a medal! Most definitely! The custom medals are going to be extra special this time around!
