Description

Ready to get off the sofa and gallop around Thornton with some friends?  Yeah, you are!  Come frolic with us at the Unicorn Runner 5k in Thornton to kick off your summer!  You'll earn a sweet tee shirt and a flashy unicorn finisher medal!

It's a 5k distance for all, and whether you walk, trot, canter or gallop, we'll be happy to see you!  This event also features a shorter saunter for those not quite ready to enjoy a full 5k!  The untimed 3/4 mile run is long enough to get your heart rate up and be a 'real run' without being a sprint!

Costumes are encouraged and we're holding a COSTUME CONTEST for DIY costume clad participants!

Remember to refer your friends and you can earn back up to $20 back from your registration fee.  Also - teams of 5 or more each get $5 off their registration.  So form a group and get your buddies to join you today!

CHARITY PARTNER

We are very exited to partner with Food For Hope for the Unicorn 5k.  Food for Hope delivers food to local children in Adams County. For this race you have two ways to help out. You can do an online  DONATION or bring in-kind food donations for a chance to win a raffle prize! Either way you choose to help out your generous donations go directly to LOCAL Adams County children.  Food for Hope programs include:

Weekend Food Bags: Every week, volunteers meet to put together a bag full of nutritious food for each child enrolled in our elementary school program.  Bags include a vegetable (canned or fresh), a fruit (canned or fresh), whole grains, protein items, and 2 breakfasts/snacks. Volunteers deliver bags to participating schools on Thursday of each week, to be distributed before they leave for the weekend.

 
School Fuel: Students need snacks at school to maintain focus, keep their energy up, and find success in their classes. Many teachers have reported to us that they use personal finances to purchase extra snacks for their students who are not able to bring one from home. We created this program to provide school day snacks, and alleviate the financial burden from teachers who are providing this on their own.

Northglenn High Food Bank: This in-school food bank provides groceries for students in the school, as well as for any Adams 12 school district families who need extra nutritional support.

NEW IN 2021:  We are now supporting two new areas with Food Banks, one in Pinnacle Charter School and the other in Adams County 14 District Building.
