The Junior League of Norman (JLN) recently announced the 11th annual spooktacular Monster Dash event, complete with costumes and family fun. This year’s Monster Dash is planned for Sunday, October 29 beginning at 2 p.m. at Reaves Park in Norman.


Monster Dash benefits multiple community programs and events hosted by JLN.


“Monster Dash is a family-friendly event that we’ve proudly hosted for more than a decade,” said Courtney Bain, Monster Dash committee co-chair. “It’s not only a fun event for our community to get out and enjoy, but it also supports JLN initiatives that reduce obstacles and increase opportunities for vulnerable children in our community.”


This family-friendly event is open to participants of all ages and costumes are strongly encouraged. Finisher medals will be presented to all 5K runners and fun run participants will receive a ribbon. Additional prizes will be awarded to the overall top three male and female 5K finishers.


Registration is $30 for the 5K, which includes a timing chip and t-shirt, or $10 for the 1-mile Fun Run. All participants will receive a swag bag. Additional t-shirts are available for purchase during online registration but are only guaranteed if registered by October 15. Prices increase after October 15. The 1 Mile Run/Walk is free for all paid 5K registrants. Registration is now open online at 


Packet pickup will be held at OK Runner, 3720 W Robinson Street, Suite #116, in Norman on October 26 and 27 from 5 to 7 p.m.
