[ARCHIVED] Show your patriotic pride; 5K After 5 series kicks off July 3

5K After 5 Patriot Run

Nothing highlights the spirit of our independence better than the colors red, white and blue. Let freedom run along East Plum Creek Trail with the Town’s 5K After 5 series. The Patriot Run kicks off the season Friday, July 3.

Last minute check in begins at 5 p.m., and the race / walk starts at 5:30 p.m. Head to for registration. The first 100 participants will receive a free visor in lieu of T-shirts. Join us for an opportunity to participate in the first non-virtual 5K in Castle Rock of the 2020 season.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several social distancing measures will be in place. Staff will be abiding by all current State heath orders. Race registration will be limited and start times will be staggered. Additionally, participants are encouraged to wear a face covering during the registration process. Those face coverings may be removed once the race begins.

Preregistration is $20 for adults and $15 for youth. Day of registration will be available for $25 for adults and $20 for youth. Children under 12 years old are free, but must be registered. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed.

Following the race / walk, participants are encouraged to enjoy live music, food trucks and cocktails at First Fridays in Festival Park. More information, including updates on COVID-related precautions, is available at or follow the event posts on the Town’s Facebook page (CRgov).
