Ready to get off the sofa and gallop around Highlands Ranch with some friends?  Yeah, you are!  Come frolic with us at the Unicorn Runner 5k in Highlands Ranch to finish off your summer!  You'll earn a sweet tee shirt and a flashy unicorn finisher medal!

It's a 5k distance for all, and whether you walk, trot, canter or gallop, we'll be happy to see you! This event also features a shorter saunter for those not quite ready to enjoy a full 5k!  The untimed 3/4 mile run is long enough to get your heart rate up and be a 'real run' without being a sprint!

Costumes are encouraged and we're holding a COSTUME CONTEST for DIY costume-clad participants!


The Balloon Guy will be back this year- creating balloon creations for all!

Remember to refer your friends and you can earn back up to $20 back from your registration fee.  Also - teams of 5 or more in the 5k each get $5 off their registration.  So form a group and get your buddies to join you today!

Learn a little bit more about Blessings in a Backpack:

Mission: Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

Vision: Every school-aged child in America has the nourishment needed to learn and grow. As a leader in the movement to end childhood hunger, Blessings in a Backpack strives to ensure children do not go hungry on the weekends by empowering individuals and communities to take action.

Why Do They Do It: There are more than 11 million children in this country who are at risk of hunger. The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs, but we want to make sure they’re getting nutritional meals over the weekend, too.


Run with the BLESSING


We are proud to partner with Sneakers4Funds! When you donate your gently used or new athletic shoes, a donation is made to our ongoing charity partner, Growing Home!
