1) Fun Arm Warmers. These are easy to make with a fun pair of tube socks. You simply cut the toe off and a little hole around the heel of the sock for your thumb and you are ready to rock!!
2) Leg Warmers. Like the arm warmers, find some fun and funky tube socks and rock those babies. They will add color and some flare and who doesn’t want that.
3) Simple costumes. Add ears, a tail and become a cat. Add some horns and become a devil. Sport some fairy wings, a tutu and BOOM, you are now a fairy. With all of these, you can still wear your comfy running clothes under them.
4) Make-up. You are running and will sweat so don’t wear anything that will smudge. Some sassy lipstick, even throw some eyelashes on, add color in your hair, etc.
These races are meant to bring out the Halloween spirit, so be creative and if you want to rock your costume, do it. If not, rock something and have fun running!! And bring along your family and friends. Most of the races have shorter distances so even the littlest of your family can participate in some way, even if it is being pushed in a stroller!
