When and where

The sixth annual Allies in Disguise 5K and Mile will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017 at Craig Park in Painted Post. The event is AIM Independent Living Center’s fall fundraiser. 

Get your costumes ready!

Runners and walkers are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes, and a prize will be awarded for the best costume. There will also be snacks, refreshments and children’s activities.

Team competition added

A new feature in the 5K this year is a team competition, with teams of four runners. Prizes will be awarded to the top male, female and mixed teams based on the four runners’ combined time.  Team members also compete individually in the 5K.

Race route

The event will start and finish in Craig Park, and the course follows the Painted Post-Riverside Bike Path. Volunteers will control traffic at street crossings.
