Rotary Spirit Run set for Oct. 30

Club urges runners to don costumes for Halloween weekend event

The Rotary Club of Pleasanton will hold its first-ever Halloween Spirit Run on Sunday, Oct. 30, with proceeds going for community service projects in Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley.

The event, patterned after the club's popular Father's Day Spirit Run, will include a 5K road race as well as several races for children. Mike Hosterman, chairman of the Halloween-themed Spirit Run, said it will be a family-friendly event. Participants are encouraged to come in costume.

Club members as well as volunteers from other civic organizations will staff the event on race day. Registration will start at 7: 30 a.m. in the parking lot on Main Street shared by Domus and Round Table Pizza.

The 5K race will kick off at 9 a.m. under the Pleasanton Arch, with a 50-yard and 200-yard races for children scheduled at 10 and 10:30 a.m.

Main Street will be closed for the event with its reopening set for shortly after 11 a.m.

Hosterman said sponsorships are still available for the event. More information can be found on the Rotary Club's website at
