Give your Halloween costume a test "run," and wear it during the Call Federal Credit Union Marathon, Jr. We'll be passing out prizes to the most "BOO-tiful" costumes!
We want to help you get to the finish line of the Marathon, Jr. Follow our training guide and log your progress to make sure you are properly prepared for this event. Teachers can print off a grayscale version of the log and photocopy it for students.
Say Cheese! Brightroom photographers will be snapping participant photos along the course, so don’t just flash your pearly whites – make sure your bib is visible! Then visit Brightroom's website the week after the race to see your pics.
