Families flock to annual Halloween-themed 5K race

Posted

Favorite superheroes, otherworldly personas and cute kids' costumes livened up the trail at deKoevend Park for the annual Hoofin' It Through the Hollows 5K race in west Centennial.

South Suburban Parks and Recreation's Halloween-themed event also featured a roughly mile-long “Trick or Treat Trail,” where kids 12 and younger collected candy at designated “spooky spots” on the trail map. 

The Oct. 24 event's costume contest took place online this year — photos were uploaded to a Facebook album for people to vote on. 

Parks department staff dressed up for the race, too, donning costumes based on characters in "The Wizard of Oz."

“Get those robotic legs going!” yelled assistant race director Heidi Somer, dressed as a scarecrow, cheering on a runner in a robot costume.

After enduring a shutdown of parks-and-recreation programming in the spring, Somer relishes seeing crowds enjoy activities together at events such as the 5K.

“It's wonderful even with all the modifications,” Somer said, referring to coronavirus precautions. “That's OK — we can live with that.”
