Description

The Fiesta 5K Olé! - A Cinco De Mayo running tradition will take place at Redmond's Marymoor Park in 2021.

For this year, while following safe running guidelines, you'll have the ability to select your start time anytime between 8:30am - 11am, so if you aren't the early bird runner, join us a bit later! 

Though this year won't feature the Cinco De Mayo party most are used to (unfortunately due to safety guidelines there won't be a post-run beer garden or live music) We'll still offer participants a taco truck or two at the end of your race. So pick your start time and run your race. After you finish, snag your favorite tacos and then go celebrate your Cinco De Mayo with your favorite friends and drink of choice!

Event participation will be limited so register early!

COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
LIVE RACING IS BACK! 

We are stoked to welcome runners back on course and take part in some fun, engaging events. To do so, we need to make sure you're safe first and foremost. To do so, we'll be following the guidelines provided to us, as well as adding some of our own.

To ensure all participants, employees and volunteers safety, we will be following the Governor's "Safe Return to Running" guidelines and enforcing the following. Please help us keep everyone safe by following the guidelines put forth.

For starters, the event will be capped, so capacity is going to be extremely limited, register early to ensure your spot at the start line. Speaking of start lines, you'll need to select what time you'd like to participate. To encourage social distancing, we will be offering time slots 3 minutes apart from 8:30am - 11:30am for you to start your race. You'll need to select a specific time during registration. Register early to ensure your time (and get your friend to register with you).

  • Masks/Face Coverings will be required AT ALL TIMES once you exit your car until you start your race
  • Use hand sanitizer. It will be available at the packet pickup area as well as at all portable restrooms


While on course:

  • Please do not run next to each other (unless in your group). Always leave room for others to pass safely.
  • Face coverings will not be required (except at water fill up stations), but we encourage all participants to cover up while passing others

  • After your race, results will be emailed to you, no need to hang around. Please clear the area so others can start their race, finish their race and visit packet pickup.

If you aren't feeling well, have been near others that have been exposed to COVID-19 or have tested positive. Please stay safe and stay at home. We'll mail your packet to you so you can complete your race virtually when feeling better. Let's not put others at risk.
