5 Clever Halloween Costumes for Runners
It may be Halloween, but who says kids get to have all the fun? It’s time to get your costume in order. Runners are no strangers to donning intricate costumes for race day, so we decided to round up our 5 favorite run-inspired costumes. All of them are sure to be a hit at both a Halloween party and on the road.
1. The Flash
Unleash your inner superhero. Nothing makes you feel speedy like dressing as a someone who runs faster than the speed of light. Plus, it makes for a great joke when you zip past the competition.
2. Richard Simmons
Are you ready to sweat? We have the perfect costume for you. It has a bonus benefit of being extremely easy to run in. Light breezy shorts, a tank and sweatbands? Count us in! The best part? You can lead everyone in some pre-run stretches.
Need a clever group costume? This Pacman costume is one of the best we’ve seen. It’s especially hilarious when seen in action. The only downside? The costume can get a bit bulky. Also, you have to stay in a certain order to get the joke across.
4. Indiana Jones
Run like a giant boulder is chasing after you! This costume adds a little fire-under-your-feet to keep you at your fastest. And it’s a surefire way to clear your path to victory. Soon the holy grail of golden medals will be yours!
5. Forrest Gump
This costume is a classic and it’s consistently one of favorites. No one loves a good jog more than Forrest Gump, and that makes this the perfect runner’s costume. And you get to hear “Run, Forrest, run!” jokes all day long. Somehow, they never get old.
