We will show a halloween movie (kid-friendly) at the finish line, and Oro Valley Parks and Recreation will provide haunted hayrides (after all Monster Mash runners have cleared the field.)

The Monster Mash is roughly 3 miles. You will have to perform tasks at four stations on the course before you run out to the turn around on the riverpath. But wait! There’s more. See below…

You are free to start running between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. No one will be allowed to start after 6:30 p.m.
