Event Information

Date: September 29, 2018 at 6:30 am

The Annual Laveen 5K is a community event that started over seven years ago, since the inaugural year the event has continued to be community based oriented, the Laveen 5K  provides the residents of Laveen (and it’s surrounding cities) an opportunity be active and also provides an opportunity for local Laveen businesses to promote their services and/ or products.

This year 2018 we are keeping our focus on creating an active life style for both adults and kids.  We are continuing with the fun event just for the kids- The Kids 300 meter dash!  In addition to the kids dash, we are adding new age group awards to highlight our youth participating in the 5k.

NEW FOR 2018  This year we are adding a CrossFit division.  Participants in this division can run as individuals or in a team of two.  Each participant will have to run along the course and complete the stations during their run. The team with the fastest combined time wins.  See the awards for additional information.

Participant must be at least 16 years old to participate in the CrossFit event.

In order to promote an active life style we are providing three different training programs.   The training programs will guide walkers, joggers, beginner runners or those who would like to start an active life style and how to train for a 5k run.   We created  free training seminars to get you started with the your new life style or to improve your running.  These three programs are very user friendly, they will challenge you and help you achieve your goal.

This event is professionally timed by Race Timers using their disposable chip timing system.
