Waldo Waldo 5K Info for Downtown Residents
Thousands of Waldos in Your Neighborhood!
The 2017 Waldo Waldo 5K will again be held in Downtown Colorado Springs. Check out the route map to see the impacted areas.Find out more abut the event on the Waldo Waldo 5K homepage!
Traffic in the areas around the route will be impacted Saturday morning, October 21 during the event, but we're working with the City of Colorado Springs to ensure our footprint is as small as possible, and the affected streets are opened as early as possible. (See the traffic control plan PDF.) We're working with the Downtown Partnership to keep the impact to downtown businesses minimal, while bringing in a ton of happy visitors to enjoy our beautiful downtown!
Downtown residents and businesses are encouraged to get involved and join in on the fun! Participating is, of course, a blast (and there are group discounts and corporate ticket sponsorship opportunities) but you can also volunteer, sponsor, or cheer on the runners and add some extra downtown excitement to the route!
This is a local, home-grown event. We partner with local businesses and work with local vendors as much as possible. The money raised is invested in local non-profits doing excellent work right here in Colorado Springs. Special thanks to elope, Inc., who as the presenting sponsor has made this event possible from the beginning. We’re always interested in creative ideas and opportunities to collaborate with like-minded people in the community. Want to be involved? Have a cool idea? Get in touch!
