The Great Pumpkin Dash is touted as a fun 5k run and kids fun run. Held the Saturday before Halloween, participants are encouraged to dress and run in costume. There will be a prize for Best Costume. Participants even run by an old cemetery.

Honoring Tomas Cuevas Jr.: A man of faith

Laura Aebi- Lifestyles Editor

After her son was killed by a drunk driver in 2008, San Marcos resident Celia Rosales took her loss and channeled it into an event that would honor her son while helping the community at the same time.

The result was the Dia De Los Muertos 5K Run/Walk & Kids Fun Run, now in its fourth year. Established in memory of Johnny T. Rosales, the 5k helps raise funds for a scholarship in her son's name, as well as benefiting Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos.
