May 4, Mishawaka Riverwalk, 9am start
MISHAWAKA, IN—Take it all in—a morning run on the Mishawaka Riverwalk complete with Mariachi band, colorful, live entertainment, festive decor, plus, a PR bell to ring if you hit your goal! Yes, Cinco de Miles 5K is again bursting with color and new ideas. For 2019, look for a merchandise table with $5 2018 race shirts and a fun new coffee mug you just might be inspired to use every day.
In four years, Cinco has become a spring opener in the Michiana running community, competitive and chip-timed for those who are looking for a challenge, yet filled with family festivity and of course a walk option. The 4th annual Cinco de Miles 5K may well attract up to 500 participants with numbers already ahead of schedule. (Feel free to run/walk with your dog — but please follow the rules so all can enjoy the run!)
Central Park will serve as the start/finish for the 5K loop course that winds along the Riverwalk.
“We are excited to welcome back Mariachi Universitario as our mariachi band and the dance group Baile Folklorico, a big highlight from 2018,” said race director Ashley Johnston-Meyerdierks. Stay for post-race refreshments and refueling. Fleet Feet Sports Mishawaka also returns this year as the presenting sponsor.
