Costume Contest

Click here to see the winners of the 2013 Monster Dash Costume Contest

One of the most fun parts of the Monster Dash races is the funny and creative costumes that runners come up with. Some run the 5K -- while others run and entire Half Marathon all decked out in their Halloween costume! We invite you to do the same (with one tip, you might want to practice running in it before race day)!  


Costume judging will happen before the race.  
When: 7:00am-7:45am
Where: Panther Island Pavilion

Here are the categories to get you brainstorming on a great costume. Awards for the winners will be announced on this page soon.
