A spooky end to our local race calendar brings us to Superior for the 4th Annual North End Nightmare. Costumes are encouraged for this Halloween-themed race, with plenty of haunted attractions and scary surprises along the racecourse.

While the 5K distance makes the race manageable for almost all skill levels, we also offer a shorter Spider Dash for kids. Our younger participants will be able to run or walk the shorter loop, enjoy the Halloween decorations, and receive some free candy and prizes as well.


Costume Contest

Our 2021 North End Nightmare participants were invited to take part in an official costume contest, with prizes available to the most popular costumes.

The top three groups or individuals, as decided by popular vote, received gift cards from one of our local running store partners:

1st Place — $100
2nd Place — $50
3rd Place — $25


Net proceeds from the event go to benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), which was created in 1990 to assist with the promotion and development of healthy and active lifestyles for youth throughout Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake, and St. Louis Counties. Since its inception, the YAF has donated more than $1 million to the community’s youth athletic and recreational organizations.
