TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Instead of watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” how about participating in the Great Pumpkin Race and Youth Challenge scheduled for Oct. 29 at the College of Southern Idaho?

This is the 11th year of the CSI Physical Education Department-sponsored 5K event, which is open to people of all ages. Afterward, the college has planned a carnival.

According to information from the college, the Youth Challenge consists of a timed one-mile race that begins at 9:30 a.m., while the race involves walking or running on both paved and fitness trail surfaces around the campus.
