Washington > Halloween Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 1-Mile Run
Elma, WA



Sunday, October 12, 2008

Event Details

Elma's annual Halloween Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 1-Mile Run is run at the same location and uses much the same course for its half marathon as its springtime counterpart, the Spring Fitness Half Marathon, which takes place each year in April at Vance Creek Park, located just southwest of the town of Elma, near Olympia in the southwestern part of the state.

Also like the Spring Fitness race, the Halloween footraces are open to all age ranges and participants with all levels of experience, as organizers note these courses are suited for both beginners as well as experienced runners. The course runs through Vance Creek Park and features very few hills, and takes runners mostly along paved scenic country roads throughout Elma's rural areas. The race starts and finishes at the park, which is located just off Wenzel Slough Road south of town, with a starting time of 10:30 AM.

Race Weather & Climate

Nestled in the southwestern corner of Washington State, just over an hour's drive from Seattle, the town of Elma typically sees mild to cool (and sometimes cold) weather conditions in the early fall, and plenty of cloudy, rainy weather. In October, Elma's average monthly temperatures range between 63°F and 39°F, while precipitation amounts average around 5.68 inches for the month.


2008 fees:
$40 if registered before October 1, 2008
$47 between Oct. 1 - 11
$50 on the day of the race


Online registration is not yet available for the fall 2009 running of Washington's Halloween Marathon or Half Marathon. Please check back later for updated information on how to sign up for this race.
