Welcome to Manda’s Race, a 5K run and noncompetitive walk. Your host is the Community Action Drug Coalition of Porter County and your safety is paramount to us. So, we please ask you to participate without listening devices that muffle course marshal instructions and oncoming traffic. Manda’s Race is stroller friendly, but “strollers”, please start the event from the back. Thank you for your kind consideration and we hope that you find Manda’s Race not only safe, but the creepiest fun you have ever had in a 5K. Happy Halloween.

Happy Halloween!
