Planning for 2024?
Hallow’s Eve will be held on October 26, 2024

Dress up to race through some of the North Shore’s most gruesome trails in the Hallow’s Eve Trail marathon, half marathon and 10K trail races. A truly scary event! From the start at the base of Lynn Creek, you will be challenged with some of the ghastliest (it’s Halloween) trails that Vancouver’s North Shore has to offer. In addition to challenging courses, there are many other highlights, including a complimentary course orientation run and awards for the best costume!
