Come be a part of our fifth annual race through the historic district of Longwood. All of the proceeds will go to benefit historic preservation in Longwood, via the Longwood Historic Society. The society maintains three buildings within the district that were built in the 1870s and 1880s. We need your help to raise money for the continued restoration and preservation necessary to keep them around for another generation! The race will begin and end at the Historic Civic Center in downtown Longwood's historic district.

It will be fun, family-friendly, and Halloween-themed. We invite runners to wear costumes and will be awarding prizes for the best costumes. There will be a free kids dash immediately before the 5K. We will be playing plenty of family-appropriate music, including Halloween favorites to get you into the spirit.

The Longwood Historic Society is a non-profit and contributions are tax-deductible. 100% of the proceeds from the race will go to the Society and it's primary mission to preserve and restore our historic buildings. We have much-needed repairs to make to the Bradlee-McIntyre House and the proceeds from the event will help make that possible. Thanks for your help!!!


The awards ceremony will be right after the race. The top three in each age group get a medal. The top three overall in each gender receive a plaque.

Finish place is based on NET TIME (when you personally cross the start and finish), not necessarily the order of finish. We will start the races in waves, so runners in other waves may beat your time. Results will be posted live.

Age Groups: 12 & Under, 13-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+

Course Map

We will use the same course that we have used since 2020. It is a single-loop course that starts in the historic district, winds through neighborhoods, loops around Reiter Park, and then back where it started. The start/finish line will be in front of the Historic Civic Center (135 West Church Avenue, Longwood, FL 32750).

There will be plenty of free parking in downtown Longwood. There is a city lot, across from the Longwood Community Building on Warren Avenue. The City Hall complex, Longwood Inn, behind the hospital, and Reiter Park have lots of spaces. Overflow parking in the Sun Rail parking lot and garage, just across Ronald Reagan Blvd., is also available (Sun Rail does not run on Saturdays).
