The 16th annual Run Away with Cirque du Soleil 5K run and 1-mile fun walk will return to the Springs Preserve on Saturday, March 11, transforming the venue into a completely interactive, one-of-a-kind Cirque du Soleil experience perfect for the entire family (Pictured: Mayor Carolyn Goodman kicks off last year’s race).
Pre-registration is now open at Active.com, with those who register by Wednesday, March 1 eligible for a special early bird discount. The first 1,200 participants to sign up will also receive a free Cirque du Soleil T-shirt upon arrival. For more information, please click here.
Guests will have the rare opportunity to mingle with their favorite Cirque du Soleil artists in full costume. This year, they will also be encouraged to “show off their Cirque spirit” by dressing up in Cirque du Soleil-inspired outfits at the event, with a special prize rewarded to those with the most creative ideas. There will also be live music, complimentary refreshments from Starbucks and Whole Foods, a circus play area and more.
Early bird registration fees are $37 for adults and $27 for children ages 3 – 12 who sign up for the 5K run, with discounted fees at $27 for adults and $17 for children who participate in the 1-mile fun walk. After March 1, all prices will increase by three dollars.
