Halloween Running: Costumes You Can Run In


Halloween Running: Costumes You Can Run In

As we approach Halloween, there will be a lot of runs that you can do in costume for fun.  While you may not think of running in a costume to be fun – running with hundreds of others in costume can be a blast.  Here are some thoughts on running in costume.

A Classic

You usually can’t go wrong with dressing up in classic costumes for a run.  For example, you can be a pirate, a clown, a vampire, or more.  These costumes are usually simple attire, maybe a wig, and some makeup.  As a result, you can usually run pretty easily in any costume and not worry too much.

A Celebrity

Other fun choices for Halloween costumes are celebrities or famous people.  You can be the President, an actor or actress, or even a reality TV star.  The same principles apply as the classic costumes – you usually just need an outfit and some mannerism to match your favorite celebrity.  These costumes also allow for freedom to run.

Careful with the Masks

If you are thinking about getting a costume with a mask, you need to be very careful to ensure that you can still maintain your sight while running.  With many masks, it can be hard to look down and see the road.  Also, masks have a tendency to move around a lot if you’re running, so you want to make sure you have a tight fit.  Finally, breathing!   Many masks don’t make it easy to breathe through them, so make sure that you test out the airflow before buying one.

What to Avoid

Finally, there are some costumes you should just avoid if you’re planning on running (or at least running comfortably).  For example, avoid full body suits – like banana suits or full clown suits.  These suits make it impossible to run for any distance, and many don’t offer the best footwear for running.  Also, you probably want to avoid props for your costume, as they can be tedious to carry as you run.

Have you ever run in a costume?

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
