Brecksville Trick or Trot

5K Run and 1 Mile Trick or Treat Walk

Trick-or-Trot is a spooky, Halloween-themed 5K run and family friendly 1-mile Trick-or-Treating walk in the Brecksville Reservation! The Saturday before Halloween, “Trick-or-Trot” will bring together ghosts, goblins, firefighters and pilots of all sizes to benefit the Brecksville Kiwanis!

Oak Grove is the PERFECT fall setting for a race! Come enjoy the autumn colors and natural splendor of the Metroparks along the course.

Children will enjoy music, face painting, costumes, crafts, and of course, the trick-or-treating!

10 Costume Categories!


Parking at Oak Grove may fill up before the start of the race. There will be two shuttle buses running from an overflow lot, beginning at 7:00am. It will take you to the start and back to the overflow lot after the race. If you are planning on getting to the event closer to the beginning of the race, please give yourself some extra time in case you need to use the shuttle service. The overflow lot is the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad Parking lot past Riverview Rd., which is easily accessible from Rt. 82. There are directions to the lot underneath the photo at the top of this page..

If you drive to Oak Grove and it is full, there will be an attendant to direct you to the overflow lot. It is less than a mile away.
