About This Activity

The 5K walk/run begins promptly on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 9:30am. Register through active.com through Friday, October 7, 11:59pm or register on the same day of the race at the starting booth. The cost is only $25 for either online or same-day registration (now that's a deal!). Please bring cash for same-day registration.

Five reasons you should come to the 2016 Rodeo Round Up:

  1. Stroll through local neighborhoods.
  2. Receive a uniquely-designed T-shirt.
  3. Sample each of the entries for the Chili Cook Off competition, and vote for the Crowd Favorite.
  4. Gaze at colorful, classic cars.
  5. Mingle with our small-town community.

Local vendors will be serving a wide variety of chili dishes at Lefty Gomez Park from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Sample each of the entries for the Chili Cook Off competition, and vote for the Crowd Favorite.

The course is flat for the first half-mile, then heads up a hill for about a quarter-mile on Hawthorne Avenue, and then heads downhill for another mile, and finally flattens out for the rest of the run (with a slight hill or two).

After you finish your walk or run, show your bib number to organizers at the main ticket booth located just after the finish line within Lefty Gomez Park and you will receive a group of bonus individual tickets to the Chili Cook Off competition tasting.

All proceeds fund the Youth Parks & Recreation Programs in Rodeo.
