7th Annual Black Moshannon Monster Hunt Race

October 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Black Moshannon Monster Hunt is an adventure scavenger race that will be held at Black Moshannon State Park on October 6, 2018. 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.
