Headless Horseman 5K

Sat October 22, 2022



The Headless Horseman 5K is BACK and SPOOKIER than ever! This nighttime event will be in-person and kick-off at State and Clinton Streets in beautiful Downtown Howell. Costumed participants will wind their way through the historic neighborhoods and in Scofield City Park. Participants will receive a long sleeve shirt if registered by the end of the day on October 2. 

This year's race will have a Rolling Start with runners starting at 6 pm, you can start the race anytime between 6 pm and 6:10 pm. This will allow for participants to be spaced out at the start of the race, along the course and at the finish line. Walkers, strollers, assistive devices, and dogs on 6ft leashes are welcome. 

Please note that funds from this program help to cover not only costs incurred from the program itself but also help to make the Legend of Sleepy Howell possible. This longstanding community event offers a fun and safe trick-or-treating experience and helps especially those kids living in rural areas. Thank you for your support!
