Cheap 5K

Sunday, September 4, 2016   •  5k

Address:

Colorado Springs Flea Market, Colorado Springs, CO    view map

Description:

Everything you expect from a race from Bigwig Races ... only cheaper. We cut a few corners to knock a few dollars of our usual registration fees ... but you can't cut any corners on the course (we're still timing you). PLUS, you even get a free pancake breakfast after the race.

Features:

 T Shirt

 Finisher's Medal

 Event Timed

 Food and Drinks

 Awards

 

Course description:

The course may be adjusted from year to year depending on environmental conditions (and weather). We'll announce course modifications here on race day or earlier. Course is mostly behind the Colorado Springs Flea Market. The course starts on streets and parking lots before moving on to a surprise trail network in a shady grove. Surface is mostly winding trails.

Parking:

Enter through main entrance and park on the north side of the south parking lot behind the Flea Market buildings. If you park near the yellow school bus or the little blue building, it will be a short walk into the gate and to the start/finish area. To get to the parking area, follow the signs to the Buyers Parking area (far right lane when first entering the Flea Market).


Here's a drawing version of these confusing words:

Awards info:

First, second and third place overall for each gender.

Refunds:

Entry fees are non-refundable.

Walkers:

Yes! Our belief is that a 5K is for runners and walkers both. All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have walkers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so no matter where you start, you'll still get your accurate times.

Strollers:

In addition to running, we support health, fitness, babies, fun, etc. We'd love to have you! All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have strollers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. There is no charge for stroller babies (they're not walking or running after all) and they will not get the shirt, goody bag, official times, etc. Due to the nature of this course (trails, open fields, bumps, dips, etc.), we don't think the small-wheeled strollers will do too well. The big-wheeled jog strollers should work better. Please check out the course on your own to determine for yourself. (Check in with the Flea Market office first of course).

Pets

For the safety of all participants AND pets, no pets are allowed in the race. Additionally, no pets are allowed on the Colorado Springs Flea Market property.
