Skeleton Skurry 5K Road Run – Hatboro, PA

The skeleton skurry is a great little race that takes place in Hatboro, PA.  The weather was nice that day, only a little on the chilly side.  Running a 5K isn't the most difficult task but just imagine having to do it in a costume.

They provided awards for:

  • OVERALL MALE AND FEMALE (5K) - TOP 3
  • AGE GROUP AWARDS - (1st, 2nd, and 3rd)
  • U13, Teens, 20's, 30's, 40s, 50s, 60's, 70+
  • COSTUME PRIZES, TOP 3:
  • Best Costume - Adult and Child (3)
  • Scariest
  • Funniest Costumes (3)
  • Best Family (1)
  • Group Costumes (1)

This was my first race where I actually received an age group award.  I ended up finishing first for 20-29, and 4th overall.  My only major complaint about this race was that the course wasn't that well marked.  It takes place in the surrounding neighborhods starting and finishing at Pennypack Elementary School.  Really, I should have come in 5th place because the kid who was in front of me ended up running the wrong way.  I know they received complaints from other runners so hopefully for next year it will be better marked.  They gave some nice awards, dinner for a family of four to McDonald's (not my first restaurant of choice), a free month gym membership to the Hatboro YMCA, and 10 gift certificate to Dick's sporting goods.  They even snapped a picture of my puppy who was dressed up for the occasion:
