Waldo Waldo 5K Mission


We will have a designated handicapped parking, east side of Pionee's Museum on Nevada.

The parking garage on Nevada and Colorado (ABOVE ground, not the “Nosh” garage) is only $1 for all day on weekends and is right next door to the start/finish. The other city garages (Kiowa/Nevada and Bijou/Cascade) are also only $1 for the full day on weekends. 

Please: NO dogs, due to the amount of people we are going to have in one location, we are choosing to keep dogs out of the event. Thank you for your consideration.

NO Refunds. Please consider your registration a donation to our wonderful non-profits doing excellent work right here in Colorado Springs! 

Already have a costume? Make sure to select "I came last year and do not need a costume" when you place your order, and know that more of your registration fee will go to the beneficiaries!

Waldo Waldo, Inc.

We bring people together for a super fun, one-of-a-kind, Colorado Springs event that raises money for local community needs, especially supporting natural disaster relief, fire recovery efforts, and trails and open space maintenance in Colorado Springs and the surrounding community. The run was first set up in 2012 as a response to the Waldo Canyon Fire. In the years since, we've had thousands of participants dressed as Waldo or Wenda, and raised over $200,000 for local nonprofits.

Additional Support

Additional event coordination support is provided by some of the most dedicated, talented, amazing volunteers in the state of Colorado.
