About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Golden Eagle 5K Run/Walk for Life is a beloved project of the Desert Hot Springs High School Wellness Council. The Wellness Council believes that health can be fun, practical, and useful for everyone. They host a variety of health programs at DHS High School, including weight loss challenges for staff, health support for students, stress-relief activities, and much much more!

This is a family friendly event. Strollers and dogs are welcome! Whatever you need to be active for 3.1 miles, feel free to bring it!

All participants who sign up before March 1 get a Run/Walk for Life tshirt. Tshirts for registrations after March 1 will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Event Day registration starts at 6:30AM at DHSHS.  Race start time is 8:00AM.

Event details and schedule


Race starts at Desert Hot Springs High School and ends at the Desert Hot Springs Wellness Center across the street. The course is a simple loop through the campus and the surrounding neighborhoods.


This race is for EVERYONE! We are firm believers that health is different for everyone, so whether you want to sprint, jog, or skip to the finish life... we are happy you can join us!


The purpose for this event is two-fold. We are excited to share our love for all things healthy and fun with the community. We would like to see parents, neighbors, and friends join us for a little morning sweat.

This event also serves as our primary fundraiser for the Wellness Council. Healthy food taste tests, fitness challenges, and all our programming events take time and, often, money too. We appreciate your support in providing healthy fun activities for students and staff at Desert Hot Springs High School.
