Costume 5k is fun for all

Get out your superhero capes, your princess tutus or your animal onesies – it’s a costume 5k! Join the Cansler Y for a free and fun Costume 5k Social Run starting and ending at the Cansler Y. It’s set for Sunday, Oct. 30, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Monk Feehery says, “You do not need to be a runner to join in on the fun. We will have a costume contest for some Y swag and gift prizes from local businesses after the run. Costumes are encouraged but not required.

“Come join us for a cup of coffee and a healthy snack at 11 a.m. before the run or enjoy some after the run. Bring your kids or other friends to run with you or have them ride a bike or scooter next to you for some fun. Stroller, dog and walker friendly – just be mindful of traffic and other participants, please.”

No cost or registration required, just a fun opportunity to meet some friends and neighbors, get active and moving, and show off your best costume! Info: Monk Feehery at
