FARMINGTON — Farmington High’s Diné Club will hold a “Protect Our Elders” virtual 5-kilometer run later this month amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Runners of all ages are welcome to participate in this week-long event, which starts at Midnight on Oct. 25 and ends at 10 p.m. Nov. 1.

According to the event’s website, participants are encouraged to share photos of themselves running on FHS’s social media pages, especially if they’re wearing a Halloween costume.
