Chicago Monster Dash
EVENT COMPLETE. A great feature of the Monster Dash races is the funny and creative costumes that runners come up with. Some run the 5K -- while others run 10-Mile or Half Marathon all decked out in their Halloween costumes! We invite you to do the same (with one tip, you might want to practice running in it before race day)! Here are the categories to get you brainstorming on a great costume. Awards for the winners will be announced via our Facebook page (and email) the following week!
