The fourth annual Banzai Trail 5K Run/Walk is slated for Oct. 29 in West Glenwood.

The race, which begins at 9:30 a.m., will start and finish on Donegan Road. The course routes runners into Ami’s Acres Campground before joining a jeep road and single-track trail along Storm King Mountain. Next is a quick trip up Mitchell Creek Road toward the Glenwood Springs Fish Hatchery to the turnaround point. A fast downhill to the finish area follows.

Preregistration and race-day registration are both $10, with all proceeds going to help the Rifle Animal Shelter, the Pauline Schneegas Wildlife Foundation in Silt and the Valley Dog Rescue in Carbondale.

Preregistration can be done the week of the race (Oct. 24-28) after 4 p.m. each day at the race start line on Donegan Road or by calling Mike at 945-0979 or Craig at 987-4805. Preregistration is encouraged as race-morning help is limited.

Refreshments and ribbons will follow the race. Grand prizes will be awarded to the best male and female Halloween costumes of the day, so dress up.

Cyclists, rollerbladers and rollerskiers are invited to participate in a recreational roll on the Rio Grande Trail from Carbondale to Woody Creek on Saturday. The free event will start at Carbondale Town Hall at 10 a.m. and finishes at the Woody Creek Tavern.

There will be no water stops along the 22-mile course and transportation back to Carbondale will not be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring water and post-event dry clothing. Roaring Fork Transit Authority (RFTA) is suggested for the return trip.
