Saturday, Oct. 19: Black Cat Fun Run

Point Defiance Park

By Volcano Staff on October 14, 2013

For some, running can be an excruciating experience. To many others, it's what they live for. But however you feel about running, there's no doubt the experience can be improved by the donning of a ghoulish costume or vampire teeth and a cape. Enter the Black Cat Fun Run, a family-friendly 2.5 or 5-mile jaunt through Point Defiance Park set to go down at dusk this Saturday. Organized by Metro Parks Tacoma, the event caters to runners and walkers of all levels, and the registration fee gets you a running cap with lighted brim, glow necklace and live music, hat bales and snack at the finish line ... or water if you're, like, a really hardcore runner and stuff.

BLACK CAT FUN RUN, 6:15 costume contest, 6:30 p.m. race, check in 5 p.m., Point Defiance Park, 5400 N. Pearl, Tacoma, $25-$40, 253.305.1022
