Scary Scurry Kids Run

Halloween isn’t just for adults!

Our Scary Scurry Kids’ Run is for children up to age 9. All kids are encouraged to get into the Halloween spirit with a runner-friendly costume!


The Scary Scurry Run is hosted by Little Hoboken and will begin at 11:00am on the south side of Pier A.

The race is less than a mile. The length varies depending on the child’s age, with the oldest kids running the length of Pier A.
