The Devil made me do it

Halloween is right around the corner and if you’re looking for something different to do check out the Devil’s Chase, held in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween Day. 

For those of you not familiar with Salem, the infamous Witch Trials of 1692 were held there.  Needless to say, the town is spooky any day of the year, but things really kick into high gear around Halloween time. 

The chase is a hellish 6.66 mile race through the streets of Salem.  Devil costumes are encouraged (natch) and the top 15 costumes get a prize.  There’s also an auction for the 666 race bib number with a portion of the proceeds going towards charity.

This is definitely one of the more unique races around.

Registration is $40 and is open until race day.
