Welcome to the 3rd annual Protect the Children 5K Run/Walk.  This 5K will begin and end in North Monument Valley Park in Colorado Springs. This event is great for beginning runners and walkers.  We will present awards for the top male and female finisher.  We will host a free Kids Fun Run for children 12 and under.  Bring the whole family for a fun outing for a great cause.  For those who want to keep track of their time, our race is professionally managed and timed by Pikes Peak Road Runners.

Proceeds benefit Court Care for the Pikes Peak Region, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering free, drop-in, licensed child care to families that have court-related business in the Fourth Judicial District. We protect children from experiencing the harshness of the courtroom. Please visit our website at and like us on Facebook for more information.
