Place
Your neighborhood, your favorite trail, your treadmill, or your local city park
Description

Since its inception in 2007, the Fiesta 5K has raised more than $3.7 million for ALS research. Participants can run/walk as part of a team or on their own.  The goal of the race is simple - we want to make people more aware of ALS and raise funds to support our efforts toward a cure.

HOW DOES A VIRTUAL RACE WORK?


If you’ve participated in a virtual race at any time you know the drill, but if not, it’s easy!

Sign Up to Participate

First step is registering and making it official! Click "register now" at the top of this page to sign up for the 2021 Fiesta 5K. During registration you can also opt-in to report your race results via text or email (we’ll explain more below).

Receive A Running Visor

Each participant will receive a race themed "running visor". You will have the opportunity to pick up your "running visor" at a in-person Packet Pickup -or- we will mail it to you.

Print Your Digital Bib

We will be creating a "unique" race themed Digital Bib that you will be able to download and print and/or share on social media. Keep an eye out for pre-race email that will give instructions on how to access your "digital bib".

You can run or walk your 5K (3.1 miles) anytime between May 1st and May 30th (11:59PM ET). You can run anywhere you like - your neighborhood, your favorite trail, your treadmill, or your local city park.
