About This Activity

Back by popular demand: The most musical 5k around!! Musicians perform for participants along the route, set in beautiful Tom Tudek Memorial Park. The first Flutopia 5k saw over 100 racers, joggers and walkers making their way through the butterfly garden, over the scenic hills, past the dog park and community garden, all serenaded by world drums, trombone duos, solo flutists, a brass quintet, a flute choir, vocal duos, and a jazz combo. Plus there are Musical Prizes! and a 50 yard dash for kids under 10.

Your registration guarantees a t-shirt with the beautiful Flutopia logo if you are registered by July 15. A small number of additional t-shirts will be available the day of the race.

This race benefits Centre Volunteers in Medicine and Doctors Without Borders.

You may add a $3.00 donation online, or in person at the race if you would like to give the healing gift of music in the form of a recorder flute to an underprivileged child in Guatemala. The race director will personally deliver the flutes and provide the first lessons in March, 2015.

We are changing the world, one concert at a time!  Playing it forward!
