First Friday 5k's After 51STFRIaft5Logo_FINAL

Join us on the first Friday of every month, June through September, for a 5k untimed walk/run series along East Plum Creek Trail. Afterward enjoy live music, food trucks, cocktails, and more at Festival Park in the heart of downtown Castle Rock. Each Friday there will be a different theme for the race to go along with the live music performance that evening. Prizes will be given to best dressed, not who can finish the race the fastest. So come unwind after a long week with a beautiful trail run through Downtown Castle Rock and then stay for the free First Fridays, After 5 Concert Series in Festival Park! 

You can register for the entire series or pick just one. Registration includes our swag item for each 5k, a beverage at the concert and different giveaways at each one for best dressed. Visit our First Friday's page for dates and information on each of the race themes.

Come out for our only evening event that takes place on East Plum Creek Trail. We will be starting from one of two locations, Castle Rock Middle School (12 miles round trip), or Douglas County High School (3 mile round trip). Families will make their way to and from Festival Park. 

Once at the park we will have glow in the dark decorations for their bikes, a weenie roast, giveaways, and new this year CSU Physics will have multiple telescopes to check out the moon and stars. Families are welcome to ride back to their starting point or can arrange to be picked up at Festival Park.
