The Gallop 5K in Garden of the Gods Gallop - Family Friendly Stick-Horse 5K

From the creators of the Waldo Waldo 5K, A brand-new event for fall 2019. It is the same family-friendly outrageous fun.


Each registered participant will receive an official stick-horse. Yes, a stick-horse. Can you imagine! You get to gallop through the iconic Garden of the Gods with red sandstone formations to your side, the dramatic Colorado sky, magnificent Pikes Peak to the West, fall in the air, and of course your trusty companion stick horse by your side.


The Gallop 5K in Garden of the Gods will be a one-of-a-kind, fun, Colorado adventure for all ages and all abilities!


Untimed and welcoming, so if it’s your first or 100th walk, you’ll have a fun-filled day! Strollers welcome!


The day of the event has a beautiful fall 5K route, 'Watering hole” AKA Beer garden, local interactive exhibitors, and family friendly activities such as bubbles, hula-hoops, music; a 100% local feel.

Each rest area will have a water station so you and your horse can stay hydrated.

There will be three waves: the fastest runners go in the stampede wave, then joggers in the gallop wave and everyone else in the trot.

Go west, be silly, show you love of nature, support local, and give back.
