About This Activity

JJC Haunted 5K Run/Walk

The Joliet Junior College Foundation and Athletics Department are proud to host the third annual Haunted 5K Run and Walk on Sunday, Oct. 23 on the Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet. All ages are invited to attend; in addition to the 5K, there will be a one-mile race for children under 12. 

*Current JJC students, alumni and employees can register for a discounted rate of $20. Please contact klarson@jjc.edu for your discount code.

“We are expecting more runners, walkers and kids than ever as this fall event continues growing in popularity each year,” said Alumni Relations and Annual Fund Manager Kelly Larson. “It’s a great 5K for competitive runners, but it also provides a healthy, fun activity for the whole family all while supporting our students.”

The past two Haunted 5K events at JJC were a huge success, with last year’s event hosting more than 400 participants, helping to raise $40,000 for student scholarships, college programs and athletics.

Participants are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes in this themed race. After the race, runners and their families are encouraged to stay for kid activities, face painting, candy and more. 

*Registration details are provided below in the "Event details and schedule" section.
