Graniterock and Pet Friends of Hollister have teamed up for a 5K fun run/walk and open house Saturday, June 14 at the Southside sand and gravel plant in Hollister.

A 5K run for humans only will start at 8:30 a.m., as runners will ramble through and operational sand and gravel quarry at 5632 Airline Highway. The 5K walk, which starts at 8:35 a.m., is for walkers and their "favorite four-legged friend," either dogs or cats, on the course, which closes at 10:30 a.m.

The morning will also include a quarry open house from 9 a.m. to noon, during which time guests can stroll through the facility and participate in plant tours and enjoy hot dogs, chips and soft drinks with no admission charge.
