Description:

Do you feel the need, the need for speed?

Join us Sunday, August 25, as we run through the hills of the Air Force Academy for the 4th annual Starlight Top Gun Run! 

Participants can choose to run in a 5k or 1 mile run/walk as individuals or as a team.  The 5K run will be professionally time.  All participants will receive an event t-shirt and sunglasses as part of their registration, as well as a goodie bag and refreshments after the race. Dogs (on leash) will be permitted on the course and will receive a special treat upon check-in.  Strollers will also be permitted.

Each race entry will also include one ticket to the children's Danger Zone, a fun obstacle course play area with inflatables and water .  Additional Danger Zone tickets may be purchased onsite for $5 per child. 

All funds raised by the race will benefit the Starlight Children's Foundation of Southern Colorado to support the mission of Starlight-helping seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.

If you are interested in becoming Star Sponsor of the event or volunteering on race day, please contact Robin McKinney at robin@starlight-colorado.org

We look forward to seeing you on race day!

Parking:

All participants need to enter the Academy through the North Gate off of I-25. All drivers must have a valid driver's license and proof of current car registration to enter the gate. Please plan ample time to go through guard station, as there is a large event on the athletic fields at the Air Force Academy. Once on base, cars should continue straight on North Gate Boulevard and make the first left onto Stadium Boulevard (large bomber plane on left). Follow signs to Falcon Stadium and turn right into the parking lot. Cars can park in the main lot.
