If you happen to pass by Wiard’s Orchard on the morning of Saturday, October 12, be prepared to come across zombies, werewolves and other monsters running through the street. But don’t worry, it’s all for a good cause. The March of Dimes is teaming up with Running Fit to host
Halloween-themed 5K and 10K races, raising funds to improve the health of babies in Michigan. The course will run about a mile on gravel roads and the remainder will be on a cross country route through Rolling Hills County Park. Participants will be running in costume and awards are given to the fastest and scariest runners! Children are able to partake in the activities with the Kid’s Cider Mill Mile where awards for best costume will also be given. Don’t miss out on this “freaky fast” way to have fun and donate to a worthy cause!

Saturday, October 12. Race times begin at 6:30 am. Early registration begins at $29 for adults/$14 for kids before October 10. Wiard’s Orchard. 5565 Merritt Rd., Ypsilanti. For more information and to register, visit
