About This Activity

Join the Chaparral Marching Band at the Cherry Creek Trail adjacent to Tagawa Gardens for a fun family 5K! Enjoy running to the cadence of our award winning drumline to spur you on to a new PR! If your preference is   to take it easy,  bring a pet, stroller, or your kiddos and enjoy the shade from the large cottonwood trees as you meander along the trail. At the end of the race, peruse our vendor expo and recharge with a complimentary snack and beverage. Your race bib entitles you to a free 4 pack of pansies at Tagawa Gardens, as well as a discount on a tree or shrub the day of the race!

Event details and schedule

Bib Pick-Up and Walk-Up Registration Begins at 7:00 a.m. and will close at 8:30 a.m. There will be a pre-race demo and warm-up and the race will begin in wave format at 9:00 a.m.

The course consists of 2 loops along the Cherry Creek Trail - Most of the course is dirt or gravel, with a small segment on concrete. This is an open course, so runners must be aware of bikes, and other runners or walkers.

There is plenty of parking at either Tagawa Gardens or at the Trailhead just off of Bronco's Parkway.

We will run rain or shine, so please bring your sunscreen or rain jackets!
