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!

YEAR OF THE DOG
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!
We will also be inviting a few dog rescues and the Arizona Canine Freestylers to entertain you!
