First Day 5K

Haaaappy Newww Yeeearrrr! It’s time to make some serious improvements.

Hmm, where to start? The case of the mysteriously missing shoe? Check prices on steam-cleaner rentals? Figure out who that trans-gendered monkey with an eye patch belongs to? Sounds like you’ve got one heck of a resolution list.

Lucky for you, there’s a New Year’s Day 5K around the red holes of Papago Park to get your year off on the good foot. This particular event boasts a 5K run or a 1K fun run/walk. The start location is ramadas nine and ten, right next to the Phoenix Zoo.

Hey, maybe they’ll recognize that monkey!
