The 8th Annual Freaky 5k Run/Walk: Saturday, October 29 @ Colby DSC_0340 is complete!

Check out the race results HERE.

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. We invite you to join us for a costumes appreciated trot through town in support of Hardy Girls Healthy Women.  Grab a bed sheet or a boa (and maybe a friend) and we will see you there!

They qualify for the Team Costume Prize and each team member gets a discount on registration.  Adults on teams pay $20 and students on teams pay $10.  Before you register as a team, agree on a team name so you all put the same thing on your registration form.

IMG_6866Do you feel like you just have so much more to give? Is this your jam?  Or your peanut butter? Consider fundraising for this great cause with a fun race as your excuse.  Set up your fundraising page or contact Kelli at for more details.  (If you raise $50 or more, we will waive your registration fee).

The Costume Contest will include awards in 4 categories: Scariest, Best Team and Most Creative.  New this year is a fourth category, Hardiest.  The Hardiest Costume will be awarded to the individual or team whose costume(s) highlights a ruckus causer.
