Check out iDaph’s annual Trick or Trail 5k & 1 Mile Spooky Sprint, a Halloween-themed, in-person running event that will take place at the Kanuga Conference Center this year in Hendersonville, NC. This family-friendly and Halloween themed running experience is a local favorite, and this year it takes place Saturday, October 17th at a new location. The Kanuga Conference Center offers 1,400 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a 30-acre lake, 20 miles of hiking trails and a brand new mountain bike park, so participants can make a weekend out of it and bike and run with the whole family. Kanuga even offers dog-friendly cabins and camping sites.
Kids and parents especially love this race because of its fun Halloween costume theme. The iDaph team will be offering up decorations and candy to go along with the Halloween festivities, and children are welcome to “trick-or-treat” along the trail during the 1 Mile walk or run. The 1 Mile is untimed and starts early in the day, so parents and/or guardians don’t need to stress about losing daylight.
Trick or Trail 5k Course is run entirely through the wooded campus at the Kanuga Conference Center. The 5k course includes a beautiful loop on the Daisy Trail around the sparking 30-acre Kanuga Lake and has a mixture of single track trail and gravel, paved, dirt and grass paths and roads through Kanuga property. The course is flat around the lake with a few roller hills through the property. Total elevation gain is almost 200 feet for the entire 3.1 route.
