  1. Fleet Feet Boulder Halloween Run!

Planning a sweet Halloween night filled with bags of candies and treats? Don’t worry, we all are; but Boulder’s Fleet Feet running shop will prepare you with a nice run before your sugar filled night. Not only is this a good chance to be social in our community while getting some exercise, but costumes are highly encouraged for this special run! There will be prizes, treats, and Halloween surprises as you run through Boulder sharing your Halloween Spirit. The run leaves from Fleet Feet at 6 p.m on Friday Night, you’ll definitely be nice and hungry for whatever candy that the trick-or-treaters don’t grab!

  1. “Virtual Reality” Haunted House

This activity is for the more adventurous Halloweeners. Why experience reality, when this Halloween, you can experience a haunted house from a third person perspective in “virtual reality”. Upon entering, those who dare will be given video goggles and “walk through” the haunted house in a new and exciting way. This haunted house won’t be for everyone, as it’ll definitely prove to test perception, wit, courage, and stamina, so make sure to leave the kids at home. The haunted house is at Spruce, a men’s clothing store in Denver, but the owners are shutting down operations for this annual event. It’s free, but you’ll need to book a reservation as this haunted house is in high demand. To learn more, click here.
