After Party

All participants are invited to celebrate outrunning Tall Betsy at the After-Party in Greenway Park on Raider Drive following the race. Live music, dinner, lots of Halloween fun, and an awards ceremony for age group, overall, and costume contest winners! Don't miss the spookiest and fun After-Party in Cleveland! 


Haunt Zones

There will be 4 Haunt Zones along the 6 kilometer course, spooking you into running faster! To apply for your organization to run a Haunt Zone, email

Each Haunt Zone is organized by a local nonprofit group, receiving a donation to their organization for participating! Runners and walkers will vote for their FAVORITE Haunt Zone after the race, and the winning Haunt Zone will win an extra big winning donation! The 2017 Haunt Zone participants were:

Tri-State Therapeutic Riding Center

Cleveland High School Cross Country Team

Lee University Developmental Inclusion Classroom (LUDIC)

Advanced Photographic Solution's Relay for Life team


We always need trusty volunteers to help us make our races awesome! If you are interested in being part of the Tall Betsy fun, but you don't want to run, email and let us know you'd like to volunteer! Volunteers will get a race shirt and be invited to share in the food after the race!



The race will start and end at the Pavilion on Raider Drive and run north on the Greenway past Tinsley Park and back to the Greenway Park. Haunt Zones are notated with colored boxes in the map below.



We encourage participants to park in the Cooke's Food Store parking lot and walk on the Greenway to the race staging area at the Pavilion on Raider Drive.



It's not as big as the New York City Marathon, but we will be using the same timing technology! The race will be chip timed by Terra Running Company and the results will be immediately posted at when you cross the finish line!
