Thornton, CO US 80241
This run benefits Westgate Community School, a small non-profit charter school in Adams 12. This timed race will be run on a mostly flat (there is one short hill near the beginning) concrete/pavement course. The 5k course has been accurately measured. Custom award medals for top overall male and female and top three places in each age group. Age groups are 0-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-up. New for this year will be a kids 1k Fun Run that will follow some of the 5k course and will also begin and end in the school parking lot. The kids race is limited to those age 10 and under. Free post-race food, great sponsor giveaways, and post-race raffle. Come "run wild" with the Westgate crew at this family-friendly event!
