WUES Halloween Dash 5K is taking over the streets

The starting gun is about to sound at 6104 Auden St. for the West U Elementary School Halloween Dash — which is why you’re finding a lot of closed streets on this blessedly cool Saturday morning.

The 5K course is USATF-certified with an 8 a.m. start. A one-mile kids’ fun run launches at 8:45 a.m., followed by a costume contest at 9:15 and an awards ceremony at 9:45.

The event is a major fundraiser for the school.
