Jeepers Creepers Run Half Marathon 10k & 5k - Santa Clarita, CA

Gear up for a spooktacular adventure at the Jeepers Creepers Run, a thrilling event that promises chills, thrills, and some serious Halloween fun. The start and finish line will be at Heritage Park, nestled along the scenic Santa Clarita bike path at 24155 Newhall Ranch Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355. What sets this course apart? There’s no need to worry about auto traffic, so you can fully immerse yourself in the racing experience.

But the uniqueness of this event doesn’t stop at the course itself; it’s all about embracing the Halloween spirit. You’re invited to come dressed in your most creative and spooky Halloween costumes. Expect prizes for the best and most imaginative outfits, so let your inner ghoul or goblin shine!

For those half marathon runners who might need a little extra time to cross the finish line without missing out on the post-race party, an “early start” option awaits. The early start kicks off at 7 am on race day, but here’s the catch: you need to inform the organizers in advance so that your bib number can be recorded for official timing stats. During this early window, water stations won’t be fully set up until around 7:30 am, so you’ll need to manage your hydration for the first 30 minutes. Familiarity with the course is key for early starters.

The Jeepers Creepers Run warmly welcomes a wide range of participants, from weekend warriors and beginners to experienced runners. It’s a walker-friendly course that offers a mostly flat terrain, plenty of well-placed aid stations, and a whole lot of fun. The half marathon comes with a generous 4-hour time limit, so you can take your time and savor the beautiful scenery. Run or walk, all levels of fitness are embraced at this event.

If you’re a middle-of-the-pack runner, this race is your chance to shine and show off your finisher medal and race day t-shirt. Share your accomplishments with everyone you know and make this holiday season one to remember.

For elite and advanced runners, this course of gentle rolling hills provides an excellent opportunity to test your winter-time speed. It’s the perfect gift to yourself—a new personal record that you can celebrate well into the New Year.

Every runner, regardless of their level or speed, will receive a finisher medal, a race day athlete tech t-shirt, and a reusable goody bag. After crossing the finish line, you can indulge in some well-deserved post-race munchies.

Don’t forget about the awards! The top three male and female finishers in each race category will receive special recognition. Additionally, the top three in each age group, regardless of race distance, will be celebrated for their achievements.

So, whether you’re in it for the thrill of a spooky costume run, a new personal record, or just a scenic jog along a walker-friendly course, the Jeepers Creepers Run promises a ghoulishly good time for everyone.
