Part of the Parker Parks and Recreation Run Series, this unique themed run/walk is professionally timed (5K) and western costumes are encouraged! The Family Fun Trek is about 1 mile of laid-back, outdoorsy fun, which includes a "duck hunt" for the kids. All 2019 Participants will receive a commemorative "tin" campfire mug, free downloadable event photos, as well as a delicious post-race pancake breakfast and a chance to win prizes. The top three overall male/female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in each of the following divisions of the 5K will be awarded: 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+. All results are determined using "gun time," meaning the timing starts simultaneously for all participants in the category. The FREE Kids’ Dash follows the race for children 8 and under; no registration necessary.
The Cattle Crossing 5K & Family Fun Trek is held at Tallman Meadow Park. View a detailed map (PDF) to find routes, parking, water stations and more.
