Registration is open for the North End Nightmare race, which is at 5 p.m. Oct. 26. It will happen in conjunction with the North End Spooktacular. 

The course starts and ends near the Top Hat Tavern, and runners or walkers are encouraged to wear costumes. 

"The two-lap course will feature hair-raising, Halloween-themed areas that are guaranteed to entertain participants the first and second time along the route," a press release said. 

Grandma's warns that children may find some of the themed areas frightening, so people can call the Grandma's office at (218) 727-0947 before registering if they want to know what to expect. 

There are also free Spider Dash races at 4 p.m. for kids 14 and under. 

Adult finishers get a North End Nightmare 5k hooded sweatshirt, and kids get a mummy tote bag for trick-or-treating.

Proceeds will benefit the Young Athletes Foundation.
