The Sunnyside Post Mile is back with a Halloween theme, where runners and walkers are encouraged to dress with the holiday in mind. Note: Halloween costume is optional. The event will include prizes for the best dressed costume for adults as well as kids. There will also be a prize for the best dressed family. Most runners will probably dress in typical sporting attire and all registered participants get a free Sunnyside Post Mile t-shirt.
Children’s Skillman Dashes begin at 10:45 a.m. and will line up on Skillman Avenue close to 45th Street, running towards the Mile finish line at 44th Street. Ribbons for all Dashers will be given after each Dash.
