The sixth annual West U Halloween Dash 5k and Kids' Fun Run (presented by Texas Orthopedic Hospital) will take place on Saturday, October 29, 2016 starting at 8:00 AM. The event consists of a 5K, chip-timed race along the flat and fast streets of West U along with a non-competitive, 1 mile kids' fun run. To help get runners ready, Avenu Fitness has put together a downloadable training program, available on the registration site.
Costumes are optional but are a big part of the “fun” in the fun run. Judges will award prizes for Best Female, Best Male, Best Couple and Best Child. In addition, prizes will be awarded for the top three male and female finishers in the following age groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.
Registration is now open at http://www.westutx.gov/funrun. Prices increase on October 1. All proceeds benefit the West University Parks and Recreation Department.
