Monster Hunt Race Oct. 6
PHILIPSBURG — Calling all spooky monster hunters!
The 7th Annual Black Moshannon Monster Hunt, an adventure scavenger race, will be held at Black Moshannon State Park on Oct. 6.
You will go to a station, complete an activity, and get a clue to continue to the next station. The race course will not be revealed in advance. You must figure out which trail to take from the clues. Each station will include a Halloween theme to help you with the clues. Participants will get wet and muddy! Awards will be given to the first and second place in the 5K run. There is also an award for best costume of the day and group costume.
This course is a 5K that includes some roadways, but mostly trails. Participants will have a kayak or archery activity (equipment provided). They will need to overcome an obstacle course with a mud pit before ending the race at the slip and slide.
Early registration is $20. T-shirts are guaranteed if signed up by Sept. 10. Race Day check in is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the beach area. The race begins at 1 p.m.. A bake/craft sale will be held from 12 p.m. until race finish at the Environmental Learning Center area. No refunds will be given.
The Black Moshannon Monster Hunt Race is held in memory of Mike McCloskey who was a dedicated park volunteer and outsdoorsman. He lost a long, hard fought battle to chronic lymphocytic leukemia in January 2013 at 41 years old. The proceeds from each year’s race are donated to a local family in need due to a medical condition.
This year’s race will benefit Eva Butterworth. Eva is a three-year-old who was diagnosed with spina bifida and hydrocephalus (fluid in the brain). She has had many brain surgeries and is on a feeding tube.
