Wild Pagosa’s Harvest Haul 5K Run and Kid’s Fun Run

Dust off your running shoes and join us in Town Park on Saturday, Oct. 30, for a great time.

The Wild Pagosa Outdoor Education Program is hosting its second annual 5K Run and Kid’s Fun Run on the morning of Oct. 30. The 5K begins in Town Park at 10 a.m. and the Kid’s Fun Run begins at 11:30. There will be activities for the kids while you run the 5K. Early registration for the 5K is $15 and $20 on the day of the race. The Kid’s Fun Run is just $5. Prizes will be awarded for both races. All participants are encouraged to come in costume.

The Wild Pagosa Outdoor Education Program, based in Pagosa Springs, was designed to enable youth to reconnect with the outdoors through sensory exploration and hands-on experiences that help synthesize learning.

One of the primary goals of the program is to get kids out in nature in order to foster a deep respect and appreciation for the natural world. For the past three summers, the Wild Pagosa Program has had the opportunity to serve many local children, as well as children who are visiting the Pagosa Springs area. Proceeds from this race will help fund the operational costs of the program and ensure its continued success.

Participants can register locally at the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce or email us at wildpagosa@yahoo.com for a registration form. For additional information, call Andrea at 946-4713 or check out the website at www.wildpagosa.homestead.com.
