18th Annual Chinese New Year Run

Celebrate Chinese New Year, also called Chinese Spring Festival, by joining us for a long-standing Phoenix tradition – the annual Chinese New Year 5K Run & Wok.

Location: Ramada 9&10, Papago Park, Phoenix

Time: 9 am start, pick up your race packet anytime after 7 am

Cost: $30 until January 1, 2018; $35 until February 14, 2018; $40 after

Route: You’ll enjoy a scenic, supported run or walk through Papago Park next to the zoo, then along the paved canal path behind the Botanical Gardens and back through the park past Hole in the Rock. Safe, no road crossings and flat!

Is it TIMED? Yes

Do I get a MEDAL? Yes, for the first time we will have commemorative Chinese New Year themed finishers medals for everyone, plus a logo’d tshirt and age division medals (age categories for every 10 years).

Can we bring the kids? Absolutely! Papago Park is a lovely metropolitan park – plan to stay after the run to feed the ducks and have a picnic. Or go to the zoo! The course is stroller friendly, we just ask that you let the speedsters go off first!

Charity of Choice: Arizona Pet Project

Papago Park is beside the Phoenix Zoo, just south of McDowell Road off of Gavin Parkway. When you enter the park, head to the north end of the zoo parking lot. Park there and walk east to the start/finish of the race. You’ll see the big arch!


It’s Chinese Year of the Dog, so celebrate by wearing your best “dog-costume” to the run/walk. There will be a prize for the best dog-costume – free running shoes from Fleet Feet – so get creative!
