Join us for our 1st annual Halloween Hustle in Conway South Carolina on October 19th, 2024! We will host a 10K, followed by a 5K and a 1 Mile – run all 3 on the same morning to complete the 10.3 mile challenge and earn all 4 medals shown above!

Conway actually changes the name of the town to “Halloween” for the month of October – how fun!  Picture witch hats and jack-o-lanterns hanging over the road and a giant skeleton in front of town hall; Conway (or the city of Halloween) does it right! We start and finish at the beautiful marina situated right downtown along the Waccamaw river and take you through a beautiful route downtown. Come run the 10K, 5K, 1 Mile -or- join us for the challenge and run all 3 races the same morning!

GLOW IN THE DARK MEDALS!

 

SPINNING CHALLENGE MEDAL

Run the 10K first, then the 5K 90 minutes later and a 1 mile an hour after that. A total of 10.3 miles for the 3 race challenge and earn all 4 medals with the spinning challenge medal a whopping 6″ wide – it’s worth the extra miles!

 

QUARTER ZIPS!

All participants in the 5K, 10K or challenge will receive a really nice quarter zip included in their registration.  We’ve made the 1 mile more affordable by offering the quarter zip as an add-on at our costs. These are all picked up at the pre-event packet pickup on Friday October 18th. We will also offer these for sale online which can be picked up at packet pickup as well.
*These are soft unisex sizing (XS – XXL)

We offer a SUPER Early bird discounted pricing for a short introductory period followed by discounted price breaks that increase as we get closer to race day. We do not offer discounts on top of our low prices.

We ask that you pickup your bib and shirt here on Friday if at all possible – or have a friend pick this up for you to avoid delays on race day.

We will offer an emergency only race day pickup option if you have absolutely no other option of picking up your packet on Friday – but this is for emergencies only please.

If you can’t make it to the race on race day – you can choose to run these events virtual.  This page will explain:
– What is a virtual race?
– How to sign up for a virtual race?
– How to complete a virtual race?
– Can I switch to virtual if I’m already registered for the in-person event?
– And a few other FAQ’s.

 

What is a Virtual Race?

A virtual race is when you run the event on your own time – where ever you want.  While we can’t wrap up the after party and ship you the beer and bbq, we will ship you your swag items in the mail after the event.

How to sign up for Virtual?

This is super easy.  Just head over to the registration page and find the registration distance you want to sign up with that also says “Virtual”.  So if you want to run the 5K virtually – select “Virtual 5K”.

How To Complete A Virtual Race?

This is on the honor system.  Run anywhere/anytime, no need to send us proof or log your miles online.  Everyone that is registered for virtual will receive the swag (medal & quarter zip) shipped to your door within 2 weeks after the race.

Can I Switch To Virtual If I’m Registered For The In-Person Race?

Yes, but there are deadlines and a small $15 processing fee to cover the shipping/handling. If you’ve signed up to be at the race but for any reason you can’t make it and want to switch or “transfer” your race to a virtual race, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

#1)  It must be done no less than 7 days in advance before the event.

#2)  You must manage this yourself by logging into your RunSignUp account and choosing the “Event Transfer” option and choose the “Virtual” option for your distance and race.  Again, keep in mind there will be an online processing fee to make any changes.

 

FAQ’s & Policies:

Please keep in mind, these are our policies and they may differ from another virtual race company.  We think you will find our options very accommodating to you as a runner and we ask that you please read them carefully.  We are a small company and cannot make any special exceptions

This is something that you must register for separately and the following registration policies apply.  

  • Must be registered for the virtual option in order to receive race packet by mail.
  • If you are registered to run in a race and cannot attend, all of the registration policies on our FAQ page still  apply to you.  The only way to run a race virtually and receive your packet in the mail is if you are registered under the virtual option.

  • You may transfer to the virtual option up to 7 days prior to an event.  You will manage this through your personal RunSignUp account and there is a $15.00 processing fee. CLICK HERE to login.

  • Packets will not be available for pick up race weekend.  Even if you come to the race for any reason, or send family/friends to pick up your packet, we will not hand out any bibs, shirts, medals, or other swag items for any virtuals during a race weekend.

  • ALL virtual packets will be mailed within 2 weeks of the race. 
  • We will only ship packets to those who are actually registered for the virtual option. (Cut off for this is 7days prior to the each event)

*If you decide to come to the race instead of run it virtually.  You must manage this through your RunSignUp account 7 days prior to the event.  You will have to pay the difference in price as well as a $15.00 processing fee but we would love to have you join us!  It’s so much more fun to run with friends! ?

NO EXCEPTIONS!

Volunteers are loved by all!  We would be thrilled to have you join our race day team.  Waterstops, Intersection Cheerleaders, handing out our HUGE medals, among many other things.  We rely on some key non-profits that we partner with locally but we could always use some extra support.  If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please email volunteer@coastalraceproductions.com

Coastal Race Productions supports a number of Non-Profits throughout Horry County!  Please consider making a donation today!

Results will be posted on this page during and after the event. We will also email you a link to results during the event. But check back here during the event if you’re looking for results.

We’ve all been there. You buy something or register for an event – get sidetracked – and months later think …did I register for that race?  Hahah, well, if you’re not sure if you registered yourself (or someone else), you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

If you don’t find that you registered, come back and get signed up!

If you don’t see yourself listed, it could have been under a different name or email address – don’t hesitate to email us and we’ll be happy to look it up for you. Please be sure to provide us as much information as possible like full name, email address, physical address, nickname you could’ve registered under or even a confirmation email if you have it.

General FAQ’S:

Visit our General FAQ’s page for answer’s to all of your questions regarding Coastal Race Events.

*Please Note:

#1) Anyone on the course without a race bib will be asked to leave the course.
#2) Anyone running with a dog unless you have the required USATF paper work will be asked to leave the course.
#3) Companion riders on bicycles are not allowed and will be asked to leave the course.
These are all due to insurance regulations and are grounds for disqualification – It is for the safety of ALL participants.

Registration Policy:

We allow for deferrals, event transfers and bib transfers with minimal fees and deadlines. We currently do not allow for refunds or race transfers on our events. You may read more about this on our FAQ page.

Event Transfer:

If you want to change from one distance to another distance at the same race on the same weekend, we allow you to do this yourself prior to any Coastal Race Productions event.  This cutoff to switch is typically the final week leading up to a race and based upon availability in that event. You will manage this through your RunSignUp account and there is a $15 processing fee.  Need Help?  Click Here for a tutorial on how to edit this.

Course Support:

There is 1 water stop along the 5K course and 2 on the 10K each with water and Gatorade.  Volunteers from Non-Profits across Horry County are assisting on the course for directions, as well as at the finish line and all of the water stops. Signage is marked on the ground, over 100 directional signs, and a biker will lead both courses.  We have 8′ flag mile markers for every mile on both the 5K and 10K. Post race nourishment includes bananas, gatorade, BBQ and beer! You’re going to LOVE running a Coastal Race Productions event!

Photos:

We hire some amazing photographers to provide FREE race day photos to you. While they try to get some of everyone, there are no guarantees! All photos will be uploaded to our Facebook page, please feel free to download them, tag yourself and share with your friends and family.

Can I walk:

Absolutely! We have a 2 hour time limit for the 10K, 75 minutes for the 5K and 30 minutes for the 1 mile. 

If you’re running the challenge, it’s important that you complete the 10K in 85 minutes and the 5K in 55 minutes – we do not allow for late starts and you must run in this time limit to make the start for the following race.

Age Restrictions:

We have no age restrictions however we do ask for parent or guardian signatures on all minors under 18 years of age.

Are Dogs Allowed:

Sorry but they are not allowed on USATF certified courses. In order to be a sanctioned event – dogs are not allowed for safety reasons.  If you have a 4 legged running companion for medical reasons, you can file a request through the USATF ADA Committee (which takes 4-6 weeks) by clicking here and if they approve, they will provide you documentation that you will then need to provide to us.  Here is a direct link to the form you’ll need to fill out.

Register Offline:

We really prefer for you to register online if at all possible – it’s quick and easy with the link at the top of the page. We don’t offer offline or paper entries. Please email us if you have any concerns with registering online and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Certified Course:

Every Coastal Race Productions event is certified with USATF and measured for accuracy.  If you are hopeful for a state or national record, please give us a heads up so that we’re expecting it and can take proper actions to fill out the paperwork needed for your submission. Our courses are not just close – they are exact!

Discounts:

We’re offering the lowest prices we can for everyone and have done away with any discounts. You’ll notice price increases as we get closer to race day so register early to save the most.

Timing:

We partner with a professional Timing Company that will provide accurate results. These will be available to print on race day and online immediately upon crossing the finish line.

Overall awards are placed by Gun Time – be sure to get to the very front of the corral.

Age group awards are placed by Chip Time – meaning you can start near the back and your official start time won’t be until you cross the start line.  This also means that it’s possible for someone behind you to have a faster time and place higher.
