About This Activity

Are you tired of bland power bars and bananas? How about some delicious chili and beer with your exercise?

Then come to the Rodeo Round Up: 5K Run/Walk, Chili Cook Off, and Car Show!

For $30, you will stroll through local neighborhoods with a uniquely designed T-shirt and receive “guilt-free” admission tickets (no cost to registered participants) to the main event just after your run or walk. Local vendors will be serving a wide variety of chili, beer, and BBQ 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.

All proceeds fund the 2015 Youth Parks & Recreation Programs in Rodeo.

NOTE: The race begins promptly at 9:30am. Register through or the day of the race. 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). Your bib number will serve as your ticket to the Chili Cook Off competition tasting (one per booth).
