The Glenwood Springs High School cross country team is holding the fourth annual Demon 5K citizens race/fun run on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 5:30 p.m. The race will be staged at the field between the Roaring Fork River and the school’s football field.

The cost is $15 to enter and all proceeds benefit the Glenwood Springs cross country program. The cross country-style race is almost entirely off-road and helps support local athletic programs.

The Demon 5K is the third race in the program’s new fall cross country series and prizes will be awarded to the top overall series finishers.
