Description

JOIN US AS WE KICK OFF CINCO DE MAYO WEEKEND IN STYLE ON MAY 4 - it’s a great warmup celebration. 

The race will still begin at the High Plains Community Center. BUT WE WILL BE USING  OUR NEWEST 5k (3.11mi) COURSE that is DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER EVENTS THAT START THERE. Our ONE MILE WALK is back - Untimed (or you can still walk the 5k distance and be timed), as well as a free KIDS HOT PEPPER SCAMPER and a VIRTUAL RUN for those who want to support the cause but can't be with us.

2019 new design Dri-fit T-shirts will be given to the first 300 registrants (or April 14-whichever comes first). After that sizes "as available" (or not) will be distributed . So Pre-Register EARLY to get one of these great shirts. 

The donation fee to pre register is $30 BUT THERE IS NO ONLINE FEE for the 5k run/walk as well as the one mile walk and our Virtual Run. THE FEE FOR 18 & UNDER IS JUST $23 - and no online fee. 

The Kids Hot Pepper Scamper is FREE.

The fees increase to $35 & $25 on the day of the event. The 5K event distance will be computer timed. Awards will be given to the overall men's and women's champions as well as 1st-2nd-3rd in at least 8 age groups.   

The one mile walk and kids runs are untimed and non-competitive. 

Great food from TACO LOCO RESTAURANT** will be waiting for all paid participants when they get back to the finish. The Mexican spread includes but not limited to Tacos, Chips and Salsa. Margaritas for those 21 and over will also be available with a paid entry. 

General public, friends & family food tickets will be available online and on the day of the event for $10. REMINDER- a food ticket is INCLUDED WITH A PAID ENTRY.

We welcome ALL abilities and age levels as we get an early start to Cinco De Mayo- COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED- and YOU CAN WEAR YOUR BEST KENTUCKY DERBY HAT AS WELL! There might even be a few surprises for the best ones.

NEW THIS YEAR - our Cinco de Mayo themed photo booth is free for all entrants  

Plenty of parking on site, bathrooms, a pavilion where we have the food, fun and awards, and easy access from I-95 and the Merritt Parkway.
