Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. both nights I think their teaser says it best: “Are there really ghosts floating down the hallways of North Side High School? Do the stairs at the old Byron Health Center really go on forever? Local choreographers have gathered some of the most chilling local tales of terror as creative source material for this years’ Halloween show. You may never drive by Devils Hollow, the historic Embassy Theatre, Bostwick Bridge or Chapman Road ever again. This year’s haunting Halloween performance, Run Fast and DON’T Look Back, in collaboration with the Downtown Improvement District’s Fright Night, is sure to leave you looking over your shoulder all the way home. Come in costume, regular street clothes, or in your Sunday best, just don’t come ALONE!” 3. 2016 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of Fort Wayne Saturday, October 15 at 7 a.m. This 5k brings awareness to and celebrates survivors of Breast Cancer.

Fort4Fitness Fall Festival

Ah, Fall. The time of year every runner in Northeast Indiana looks forward to. No longer do I have to come back from my long runs looking like a melted claymation version of myself due to the notorious Midwestern summer humidity. Well, fall running season is upon us and with it comes one of my favorite Fort Wayne races, the 8th annual Fort4Fitness Fall Festival! This year the Fort4Fitness Fall Festival is at Parkview Field, September 25-26, 2015. What is Fort4Fitness, you ask? It’s a 2-day event featuring a half-marathon, 10k, 4 mile run/walk and a kids or seniors marathon. Also unique to the Festival are the double play and Triple Crown multi-race options available for those overachievers who run 2 or 3 of the Saturday races. For the young and young at heart, Fort4Fitness offers kids and seniors’ marathons. The Kids Marathon is designed for munchkins between the ages of 4 and 14 to promote wellness and healthy lifestyle choices. The Kids Marathon training programs are designed to make exercise fun and achievable for kids. To celebrate the achievements of our young runners, Fort4Fitness will host a 1.2 “Final Mile” at Parkview Field at the festival where each finisher will receive a race bib and medal! Senior Challenge is a summer-long program that is design to motivate seniors to live a healthy lifestyle and is part of the new Fort4Fitness F4F365 initiative. The Seniors Marathon is open to anyone 50 years and older, and is an incremental walking/running program. The goal for both the kid and senior marathons are to have the runners log the miles they walk or jog throughout the summer to reach a marathon distance of 26.2 miles, or more! They’ve also updated the race times this year to promote a more enjoyable experience for all of the participants: The 2015 Race Start Times are as follows: 10K: 7:30 a.m. Half Marathon: 8:30 a.m. 4 Mile: 10:30 a.m. The festival kicks off with the Expo at Parkview Field on Friday, September 25,2015 from noon to 8 p.m. (Racers can pick up their race packets on Friday from noon to 9 p.m.). The expo continues through 1 p.m. on Saturday. Registration links are below if you’re interested in running one or all of the races. Hope to see you all there!
