Two exciting Halloween-themed events will be conducted, back-to-back, on Thursday, Oct. 26, at Show Low City Park, 751 S. Clark Road.

The Spooky Sprint Kids Fun Run, open to boys and girls ages 10 and younger, is a chance to dress in costume and outrun the ghosts and goblins along a half-mile portion of the trail with a few spooky scares and lots of sweet treats. Check-in begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Senior Field concession stand for the 6 p.m. run. Pre-registration by Oct. 25 is required for $13 per participant (which entitles every runner to a medal, race snacks and special goodie bag) at the parks and recreation desk at Show Low City Hall, 180 N. 9th St., or Family Aquatic Center, 1100 W. Deuce of Clubs.

The first-ever Terror Trail, open to youth ages 11 to 17, follows at 7 p.m. at the Senior Field, with participants traveling at their own pace while encountering ever more frightful sights along the 1.1-mile City Park trail. It is like a haunted house done trail-style.

The first half-mile, teens will enjoy the silly spooks and hair-raising fun of the Spooky Sprint course, but at the half-mile point the scene will change and only the brave should enter if they dare. Advance tickets for $2 each are available at the parks and recreation desk at Show Low City Hall, 180 N. 9th St., or Family Aquatic Center, 1100 W. Deuce of Clubs, or available at the event for $5 each.
