While much of Hollywood spent last weekend getting decked out in crazy costumes, Will Ferrell took a more charitable approach to the Halloween holiday.

On Saturday, Ferrell ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Halloween Half Marathon, which benefited the ASPCA for the second year in the row.

Sporting a Ron Burgundy mustache and a Funny or Die t-shirt, Ferrell completed the 13.1 mile course in just under 2 hours and 4 minutes.

More than 12,000 runners — many in costume — participated in the event, much to the appreciation of the ASPCA.

“The ASPCA is honored to be the benefiting charity for this event for the second year,” said Kymberlee Setterberg, national director of community fundraising for the ASPCA. “We look forward to once again offering animal advocates the opportunity to meet their fitness goals while also raising awareness and funds to support the ASPCA’s life-saving programs and services that help millions of animals nationwide.”

Other celeb participants included Olympian Shawn Johnson, actor Eric Nenninger, and TV personalities Brandon Jenner and Dr. Andy Baldwin.
