The Banzai Run 5k is slated for Nov. 16 at 9 a.m. The race starts and finishes at 0211 Donegan Road in West Glenwood Springs. The hilly 3.1-mile, out-and-back course will take runners (or walkers) to the old golf driving range, through Ami’s Acres campground and up scenic Mitchell Creek Road before heading back to the finish line.

This run is a nice tuneup for Thanksgiving’s Turkey Day 5K.

To enter, bring a $20 check, made out to Colorado Animal Rescue, on race morning. Bring a friend and help out the animals.
