The West Virginia University community is invited to participate in the Spawning 5K Run and Walk at 10 a.m. Sun., Oct. 23, at the Star City Rail Trail Park.

Sponsored by the WVU Student Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, proceeds from the fundraiser will help the organization offset costs of attending state and national meetings and conventions.

The event is open to the public and there is a $20 registration fee. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in the run and walk divisions. All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt on the day of the race.

Race day check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m.
