About the Run

What is the Haunt Jaunt?

The Haunt Jaunt is a night-time Halloween-themed race hosted by The City of Plano. It is our goal to provide a safe, fun, and innovative way for citizens to enjoy their Halloween holiday. The 5K will take you through the nature preserve along the paved park trails and streets, combining the convenience of a smooth running surface and the beauty of the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve. The Fun Run will keep you off the street and in the park for a family-friendly experience.

The Fun Run

This course will take you and your children out of The Amphitheater and onto the Oak Point Park Recreation Trails. There is a turnaround point after a half-mile, and you will follow the same route back to the finish line.

There will be prizes and a costume contest for those runners who come dressed up in their spookiest garb!
