2021 Eerie Erie
Saturday, October 30

The world-famous Eerie Erie is a Halloween-themed 5k and 10k race that runs through historic downtown Erie and takes advantage of our beautiful trail system that weaves along the Coal Creek open space areas. The 10k passes by scenic Pleasant Hill Cemetery with panoramic views and where friendly spirits can’t wait to visit this year’s runners.
