In running news, KUAM Sports presents the Calvo's Insurance Trick or Treat Costume Family Fun Run/Walk 2k/5k on Halloween at Skinner Plaza. The 5k's showtime is at 5:15am with go time set for 6am.
The theme is a costume run and will feature a unique warmup session with Clare Calvo who calls it a thriller/zumba experience. With the recent passing of the King of Pop Michael Jackson, what better way to honor the legend himself with a tribute to him using some of his signature moves from his "Thriller" music video back from back in the day.
Calvo said, "Thriller speaks for itself. Michael Jackson, especially with this year and him passing, we wanted to have a tribute to him, and what better day and what better warm up than to Thriller? So we're not only going to do some original pieces from his video, but also mix in some of our warmups. So it's not just a whole choreographed piece."
She added, "We aren't going to do a bunch of choreography that nobody knows and expect people to follow along. Proceeds will be going to the EMC Cancer Foundation and we are going to be having a good time raising money for an important cause so come out! It's Halloween, get zumba-funkalicious with us and run the race."
