Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
The 27th anniversary of the Frank Kush Youth Foundation Run will take place Saturday, October 13th. For the past 7 years the run has been associated with Tempe Sister Cities (TSC) and the annual Four Peaks Oktoberfest. The 27th edition will remain on Four Peaks Oktoberfest weekend (10/12 – 14) at Tempe Beach Park. Dare To Run In Your Lederhosen or Dirndl!
Distances of 5km run/walk, 10km run and 1 Mile run/walk will grace a scenic course around Tempe Town Lake. As always, serious runners, beginners, walkers, kids and kids in strollers are encouraged to participate.
