This event is a USATF certified race winding through slightly hilly paths of Lisle Community Park lit gently by luminaria for safety. It is more than a race, it is a family event with music, food & drinks, hayrides, costume contest, face painting, balloon artist, bonfire, crafters and more! Now in its 13th year, the Scarecrow Scramble is a premiere running experience race for the most avid runners and race participants, while promoting quality and safety.

All proceeds benefit the Lisle Partners for Parks Foundation Scholarship Fund & Lisle Teens with Character Program.
