The event will include a 5-kilometer run, 1-mile challenge walk and dog Halloween custom contest in front of the Chow Down location in the Albertson’s Plaza at 2518 Broadway in Grand Junction. The 5K will start at 10 a.m. and challenge walk at 10:15 a.m. on the nearby Audubon Trail.

Admission is $20, which includes a t-shirt. Proceeds will benefit the Roice-Hurst Humane Society. Participants who bring their dogs in Halloween costumes will be eligible to win gift certificates from Chow Down.
