A series of pre-Halloween Spooky Sprints races today featured some fast runners who sported fashionable outfits.

Many of the competitors in Lincoln Park South wore creative costumes.

The Pumpkins in the Park program included races for boys and girls aged 12 and younger.

The oldest kids ran as far as a half-mile, and there was a 10-yard dash for toddlers.

The participants were rewarded with pizza and other tasty food, as well as great October weather.
