The HoBOOken 5K event has something for everyone - including young runners! The Scary Scurry Kids' Run is open to children between the ages of 2 and 12. This live fun run is organized with age-appropriate heats that begin at 11:00 am on the open grass field located on Pier A in Hoboken, New Jersey. Registered children are encouraged to run in their favorite Halloween costumes (there will be no judging of costumes, but we love to see your kids in the Halloween spirit).

Pre-race organization will be provided for our racers by the fitness pros from The Inner Athlete. 

An adult must be present at all times with registered children. This is not a drop-off event. 

Age 3 and under - child runs with parent

Age 4 and 5 - optional parent-guided run

Ages 6 and up - child runs independently (if able)

If your child needs any assistance during the race, please just ask our race staff - we'll make sure your child has a great time with us!

All Scary Scurry Run participants receive a free t-shirt, race medal, and an amazing bag of goodies (while supplies last).
