Join us at 8504 feet for a scenic fun run or walk in beautiful Allenspark, Colorado. You can choose from the standard 5K Run Like the Wind course or the new 2K Walk Like the Breeze course. Your furry friends are also invited along as part of our DOG JOG! The race circles through downtown and then along dirt roads and amid the pine forest with breathtaking mountain views.

Canine Division. Rules are: the dog owner needs to be registered for the 5k, dogs start at the back of the pack, leash must be one that the dog's bib can be pinned on to, leashes must be 6 ft or shorter, and dog owners must pick up any dog poop. All dogs will get a finisher medal.

The Run Like the Wind benefits The Old Gallery, a center for Arts, Community and Visitors in Allenspark.
