The Costume Run is co-presented by two Third Street nonprofits, Theatre Cedar Rapids and NewBo City Market, that hope to make an annual tradition of this interactive and theatrical twist on the traditional 5K fun run/walk. The race starts at the theatre and follows a path downtown that is focused on the trail, including Greene Square Park, along the river and features a stretch that actually runs through the Circle of Ash haunted house (with the lights on). That isnt the only interactive feature of the run as there will be an activity of sorts approximately every kilometer or five times along the course.
