Wicked Run To $5K Virtual Race

HCA and ESL are on a "Wicked Run to Raise $5K!" 

Enjoy a new twist on Halloween with a number of spooktacular and physically distanced activities around town! Including:

  • Register for our free community-wide scavenger hunt. All who finish will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
  • Costumed run, walk, or dance to 5K—or NOT—you do not have to run to fundraise. 
  • Join our “race” to $5K by becoming a member of our fundraising team.
  • Anyone who raises $250 or more is entered into a lottery to win a pair of AirPods Pro!
  • Online costume contest with prizes and so much more!

Yes! I want to fundraise for the Wicked $5K—how do I join?

We are asking our littlest ghosts and biggest goblins throughout the area to rally their friends, family, and networks to support the mission of the HCA, which strives to make the arts affordable and accessible for all! 

By becoming a fundraiser for Hopkinton Center for the Arts and its resident theater company, Enter Stage Left Theater, you will help more artists of all ages and abilities in MetroWest and beyond create, explore and grow in the arts, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.

Start fundraising today. Our "big event" will be held on Halloween. You can run, walk or dance your way around town. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there is no set race course, participants may set their own course. Please take pictures and post them to our site to be entered into our costume contest. As a special Halloween treat IF you raise a minimum of $250 your name will be put in a hat to win a pair of AirPod Pros! If you choose to run, you can do so anytime from Oct. 30 through the end of the day Oct. 31, but costume contest photos must be tagged by 3pm on Saturday, Oct. 31 on Facebook or Instagram.

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help, we can ensure a vibrant visual and performing art center bringing light and life to our community. Plus we will have fun doing it in costume on Halloween!!

I just want to participate in the Scavenger hunt—how do I do that?

You don't need to participate in the 5K fundraiser to participate in the scavenger hunt.

Here's how it works:

  • A list of "spots" will be emailed to you at 6pm on Friday, Oct. 30. They could include Hopkinton landmarks, businesses, or spooky spots like a graveyard! 
  • On Saturday, October 31, starting at 10am go find those spots and take your picture in front of each one. 
  • You must make it to all locations by 2pm.
  • When you have found them all come to the HCA (deadline is 3pm). Show us your pictures and receive your bag of treats!! (Everyone is a winner here) 
  • All finishers will be entered to win a $100 amazon gift card!

That's it! Just good Halloween fun!  

We also ask that you upload pictures of yourself or your team in costume to the HCA Facebook or Instagram account with the hashtag #wickedrun and you will be entered to win a prize for best costume.
