It is once again time for the Hallowed Half Marathon, Frightening 5K, Monster Fun run and the ALL NEW Zero-K Zombie Dash(for all of the non-runners). This year’s race is Saturday October 24, 2015. In case you are wondering what this is all about check out:
Or read below for a brief synopsis  …..

The JAFTICA SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION was created to honor Terry J. Smid for his love of education and mentoring and his wish to honor his father, John L. Smid, who had great faith in the Leslie Public School system. Beyond his love of family and education, Terry’s two biggest passions were sailing and running.  JAFTICA was the name of his sailboat, and the annual scholarship fundraiser is the HALLOWED HALF, FRIGHTENING 5K AND
MONSTER FUN RUN.  The event will take place each October, as an evening race, to raise funds for the scholarship.  The original endowment comes from Terry Smid and the marathon and scholarship fund will have oversight by his descendant’s.

Last year we were humbled and amazed at the industry support for this race. We were able to award a student a $2,500 a year scholarship renewable up to 4 years.  To look at last year’s sponsors, click here. Donations can be equipment, prizes, supplies, etc.

Volunteers are always needed also. Ideally we need around 200 volunteers for traffic control, course monitors, registration, food tent, etc.  We will need volunteers Thursday-Saturday that week for as little 1 hour to an entire day, it’s up to you and your schedule. 

And last but not least runners….we need runners, old, young, slow, fast we will take them all. To sign up click here.
