The Monster Mash Run - 5k/10k & Kids K - takes place at the beautiful Karbach brewery located at 2032 Karbach Street in Northwest Houston.

The Monster Mash Run was established in 2008 in Sugar Land, Texas and was moved to Sam Houston Race Park in 2009. In 2015, RA Sports Management relocated the race to the Karbach Brewery in order to provide a new USATF certified route and a new experience for our participants. Since it's a Halloween themed run, most of the runners and families dress up in their favorite costume to enhance the fun.

The 5k/10k have a mass start at 7:30 AM (chip timed) with the kids run starting later in the morning at 9:15 AM. All courses are flat and fast.

COURSE CUTOFF TIMES


What is a course cutoff time?


A course cutoff time is not something we "want" to have it's something we "need" and are "required" to have. Due to the strictness of county road usage and approvals on permits we have to make sure we are on and off the roads within certain time allowances. The times listed below are more than resonable for most runners/walkers to complete the course.


5k (3.1-Miles) Run - Cutoff 8:30AM (1-Hour)
7:30AM Start - That means each runner of the 5k distance must be able to hold a 19:21/per mile walking pace.


10k (6.2-Miles) Run - Cutoff - 9:30AM (2-Hours)
7:30AM Start - That means each runner of the 10k distance must be able to hold a 19:21/per mile walking pace.


Kids K Run - Cutoff - None


The kids k is a short distance. They may take as long as they need.


Water Stations:

Water stations are located approximately every 2 miles and at the finish.
