- WHY ARE WE RUNNING?: We are excited to invite you to join us for the COMO 5K Run For Central America! Run, walk, roll, bring your kids, bring your dog, this race is for everyone. This is going to be a lot of fun, but most of all this is an opportunity for us to raise funds and help hungry families in Central America. Together with ENLACE, Broadway’s global partner in Central America, we are raising funds to invest in food aid and agricultural assistance in El Salvador and Guatemala. According to a recent UN News report, hunger has quadrupled in Central America during the past two years due to an extreme COVID lockdown and several devastating hurricanes.
- RACE DAY PLANS: This is a FUN run, and not a chip timed event, so be prepared to come out and enjoy yourself on race morning. You can pick up your t-shirt and race bib as early as 8am, and we will close the registration table at 8:45am. The race will start at 9am sharp. It’s going to be HOT, so we will have a couple of aid stations throughout the race course with water and gatorade. Water, gatorade and some fun treats will be available at the Start/Finish line. Bring your friends and family and join us for some exercise in the July heat for a very worthy cause!
- SPECIAL PRICING AND AWARDS FOR KIDS: We've got a discounted rate of only $25 for children ages 12 and younger. Plus, all kids will get a custom 5K medal for participating!
- REGISTER EARLY TO GUARANTEE YOURSELF A T-SHIRT: In order to guarantee yourself a t-shirt in your size, please register by Monday, July 12.
