Freaky 5k was a Spooky Success!

We had a wonderful day at Colby College on Sunday, November 1st with 160 participants in the seventh annual Freaky 5k Race. The Freaky 5k is a reminder that Halloween should be about imaginative and creative costumes, not the frighteningly sexualized ones peddled to even the youngest girls. The costumes that we saw at the race were wildly creative and a great reminder of how imaginative people can be.  Check out some of our press coverage! and more press coverage!

The costume contest winners are: Trash and recycling cans for most creative, Chuckie for scariest, and the Furies for group winner.


The race results are also in!  Congrats to our winners. (Check your snail mail for your prize!)  Full race results can be found here.
