The 5th Annual Fort Collins Mother's Day 5K Run/Walk

This is our 5th Annual Fort Collins Mother’s Day 5K race and it has become the premier Mother’s Day 5K in Northern Colorado with 350 participants last year! The race is usually run by professional timing company, Gleason Race Timing (and formerly Timberline Timing), which provides a legitimate race day experience, but this year it will be done VIRTUALLY with their support since our school district and county still have limitations on large gatherings. The funds raised have supported the purchase and construction of an outdoor learning garden, and our outdoor, innovative learning space to enhance our small campus which is at maximum capacity (800 students). The race is a nice run/walk opportunity for everyone, from competitive runners to families. Due to our current restrictions, the race will take place VIRTUALLY on Mother’s Day Weekend beginning at 5AM Saturday, May 8th through 10PM Sunday, May 10th. Participants will register online at www.FortCollinsMothersDay5K.com, run/walk the race on a course of their choosing, email times (and pictures!), and winners will be posted the following week! Register by Thursday, April 29th to receive your dri-fit race day t-shirt by Mother’s Day weekend (all registrations after April 29th will receive their race day shirts the week after Mother’s Day). Thank you to our sponsors: Gleason Race Timing, Chipper's Lanes, Rocky Mountain Bagel Works, Go West T-Shirts, Fort Collins Running Club, Whole Foods, CHAMP, Image 360, and Fortitude & Boulder Boulder Races! Thank you and Go Vikings!
