Monster Dash and Zombie Crawl benefit Boys and Girls Club

Do the Monster Dash.

The Monster Mash-inspired 5K and costume contest hosted by the Highland Lakes Association of Realtors is Monday, October 28, and benefits the Boys & Girls Club of the Highland Lakes.

“We wanted to do something that would be fun and something the entire family could do,” said the association’s Shannon Bendas.

The event is 4:30-7:30 p.m. at the association’s office, 4601 E. Innovation Loop in Marble Falls. The 5K starts at 6 p.m. and has awards for first, second, and third places. Before the dash, check out the booths with activities and candy.

“Like a trunk-or-treat,” Bendas said.

Local musician Kale Stephens will perform for the crowd.

Entry for the run/walk is $25 for ages 13 and older and free for kids 12 and younger. Register online in advance or at the event.

If you register at the event, bring cash or a check made out to the Boys & Girls Club of the Highland Lakes.

Those who don’t want to dash can “crawl.” About 10 minutes after runners take off is the start of “The Walking Dead” Zombie Crawl, a 100-meter walk.

Though it’s not required, Bendas is encouraging people to don their Halloween costumes for the event.

“… It’d make it a lot of fun,” she said.

The costume contest starts at about 7 p.m. and will award prizes for best individual costume and best group themed costume.

“We just wanted to create something that the entire family could come out and enjoy,” Bendas added.
