In the interest of public health and safety, the Gray Ghost Run Committee has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Anoka Halloween Gray Ghost 5k Run & 1 Mile Fitness Walk originally scheduled for Saturday, October 31, 2020.

This event has always kicked off the Grand Day Parade. While the Anoka Halloween Grand Day Parade will be held this year, it will use a different format. The Anoka Halloween Inc. Committee will be holding a “drive by” parade throughout the city of Anoka. This means that Main Street will not be closed for the parade, and thus the Gray Ghost Run route will not be available.

We hope to see you at next year’s event which is scheduled for Saturday, October 30, 2021.
