Pre-registration for the 2018 New Year’s Day 5K has begun!
The Race: Join Salida Recreation for the 8th annual 5K Fun Run/Walk! Get some exercise, hang out with friends and meet new people – what a great way to kick off the New Year! We even plan for a later start for those of you who may have stayed up too late the night before. This is a beginner friendly event, so if you’ve never participated in an organized walk/run event before, this is the perfect place to start. Moms and dads, strollers are welcome at this event and pet owners, your well behaved dogs are also welcome. We’ll award prizes to the top finishers and best costumes and have hot drinks, sparkling cider and snacks for everyone.
Date, Time, and Course: Monday, January 1, 2018 at 10am. Race begins and ends at the Corner of Sackett Avenue and F Street, cost is $10. Competitors follow the Monarch Spur Trail to Holman Avenue, and then turn right up to the top of Holman Avenue to the 4-way intersection before turning around and heading back to the Scout Hut. Note: Streets will be open to traffic during the entire race.
What’s New: We are highly encouraging that you register with us online this year, using the platform: Race Entry. Doing so will save you all the hassle of race day registration, waiting in line, and fumbling around with forms and cash! You will be assigned a bib already and be ready to race, have plenty of time to warm up, relax, and enjoy your coffee! See the link below to register online using Race Entry. Note: Participants are still able to pre-register in person at the Salida Aquatic Center.
