The 38th annual Kent Pumpkin Run road race will be offered Oct. 26.

Participants are encouraged to run in costume to celebrate the approach of Halloween. Costumes and the top runners will receive prizes.

The five-mile run will kick off at noon, presented by the Kent Chamber of Commerce. The main event will follow the Kent Kids' Fun Run at 11 a.m.
