19th Annual Ooky Spooky 5k on October 21, 2023

There's a chill in the air, which must mean it's almost Ooky Spooky time! This fun 5k race challenges runners to get creative with their costumes and enjoy a course that goes through the RPS campus, on the Burlington Bike Path, and through North Beach. This is our 19th year hosting this spooky event to raise funds for COTS (Committee On Temporary Shelter), and we are dedicated to supporting their mission to help those in our community experiencing homelessness!

Sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m., and the race kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to participate! There is a suggested donation of $15 for adults and $5 for children under 13.

Register for the 2023 Ooky Spooky

We will award prizes for the best costumes and best times, and each runner will be entered in a raffle for more prizes! You could win a gift card from a local business, Rock Point Maple Syrup, Honey, and more! Snacks and water will be provided for participants.

Each runner needs to complete a waiver before participating in the race. You can complete it before the race and email it to, or we will have it available on the morning of the event. 

If you have questions, email Molly at or call the school at 802-863-1104.
