Out of town online registrants only: You may have family/friends pick up your costume at any of the days listed above, or, if absolutely necessary, you can pick it up the day of the event starting at 9am.  

We're back for the second year! Bring your friends and family to walk or run in The Waldo Waldo 5K Walk & Run! The idea is simple: register, receive a "Where's Waldo?" costume to wear during the run, and support the Colorado Springs community!

This unique 5k Fun Run/Walk will be hosted at America the Beautiful Park on October 27 at 9am. It will not be timed, so if you want to know your time, bring your watch! With a $30 registration fee, registrants will receive a "Where's Waldo?" costume kit that consists of Waldo glasses, beanie and long sleeve shirt. We also have Wenda costume kits and mini-Waldo kits for kids ages 6-12. Kids 5 and under are free and do not receive a costume due to no sizes for those ages, but are encouraged to dress up as well!  Strollers are allowed on the course and we do have infant waldo costumes for sale. Proceeds will go to Colorado Springs non-profits Trails and Open Space Coalition as well as the Rocky Mountain Field Institute who support the Waldo Canyon fire relief efforts as well as local trail upkeep and maintenance.


Parking is VERY limited at America the Beautiful Park. We will have a designated handicapped parking at the park. It is recommended to walk, ride bikes or car pool. A FREE bike valet will be available at the event, no locks needed. The parking garage at Colorado and Nevada will be open and parking is $1 all day and the Palmer Parking Garage will be FREE! See details here:  Parking MAP
