Event Navigation

Join Salida Recreation for this 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 and Time:  Sunday, January 1, 2017 at 10am.  Race begins and ends at the Salida Scout Hut (210 East Sackett Avenue), cost is $10.  We encourage pre-registration by downloading a registration/waiver form at or pick one up at the pool.  You can also register on race day beginning at 9am.  Competitors will begin in front of the Scout Hut and follow Sackett Avenue to the Salida Trail System.  Competitors follow the Salida Trail System to Holman Avenue, and then turn right up Holman 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. We are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering as a course marshal or during registration, please contact Event Coordinator, Matt Sweeney at or 719-539-6738.
