The Fastest Growing (and shortest)  Running Event in CO is back!!! 

Take advantage of early bird pricing and register today!  


Sunday is Fun Day and although all we really want to do is hunker down and watch some football we “sort of” feel obligated to stay “somewhat” in shape (after all we are in Colorado, the 2nd skinniest state in America). So let's get together for a good cause and actually get “a little” exercise, too!  

Cold weather’s approaching and you’re probably thinking that along with football and hunting season, it’s time to start bulking up for the long winter ahead. Let’s go for a run, but leave those long distances to the super jocks at the Olympic Training Center and pros in our community who actually get paid to exercise. Our run, The Palmer Lake .(Point) 5K is dedicated to those who prefer something a little less challenging.

This is a fundraiser event for Awake Palmer Lake ( . A .5K race is only .31 of a mile. So anyone can do it! Plus, just in case, we'll have a “donut” aid station at the halfway point. The sugar rush should propel you right to the finish line! 

This 1,660 feet of semi-cardio is located on the west side of Rockin the Rails Park in Palmer Lake, Colorado and ends at O'Malley's Pub. We'll celebrate our fabulous feat with food, drink and football!!

  • Entry into our .5k

  • A spectacular "One of a Kind" Palmer Lake (Point) .5k Shirt - A very hip .5K Euro sticker commemorating your success.
