Hilloween 5K run helps ballet students

OMA‘O — The Hilloween returns to the Oma‘o Dirt Track for the fourth time when gates to the Hilloween 5K Trail Run and Keiki Trick-or-Treat Run opens on Oct. 28 at Oma‘o Dirt Track.

Proceeds from the event support the Kaua‘i Ballet Academy dance scholarship fund for dance tuition scholarship for youths in need.

Check-in for the 5K Trail Run starts at 7 a.m. with the run starting at 8 a.m. The Keiki Trick-or-Treat run starts at 9:30 a.m.

Organizers said the 5K Trail Run is an exciting off-road course with spooky hills, creepy obstacles and magnificent views of the island’s South Shore. The course is no longer than 3.1 miles, and organizers encourage the wearing of costumes with prizes presented for the Best Costume and Fastest Times.

The first 100 trail runners to register will be guaranteed a stylish event T-shirt. Organizers added that new for this year, all Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation cross-country runners are able to sign up for free.

The Keiki Trick-or-Treat Run is for youngsters aged from birth to 12 years old. Organizers said it is a short, easy off-road course with trick-or-treat stations along the way. All participants receive a Hilloween tote bag to haul their goodies in.
