Fit Family 5 Race A Success!


To the Editor:

The 1st Annual Fit Family 5 Mile was held on Saturday, May 31st. The event was a great success thanks to many groups and community members who came together to help create and support a new and fun Estes Park community event geared towards families and fitness. The event included a five mile run/walk and a kid’s activities component which included hurtles, a sprout sprint, long jump, obstacle course, Frisbee and softball toss, face painting and a 1⁄2 mile run.  Proceeds for the event totaled approximately $8,000 and will be split between Lifelong Learning of Estes Valley (LLEV) Preschool and Primary School and Families for Estes (FFE). Both non-profit groups are working towards bettering the services and facilities available to Estes Valley families and their children.

A special thank you to our sponsors including, Family Medical Clinic, Cornerstone Engineering and Surveying, Westover Construction, Starbucks, BASIS Architecture, Bank of Colorado, Crystal Creek Development, Ed’s Cantina, Estes Park Mountain Shop, First National Bank of Estes Park and GMAC‐First Colorado Realty. We also received generous support by in kind donations from: EVRPD, Estes Park News, Trail Gazette, Crystal Pines Water, Safeway, Kind Coffee, Fun City, Geppettos Toy Store, Mountain Munchies, Wapiti, McDonalds, Estes Park Rent‐All, Starbucks, Glacier Lodge, Coffee on the Rocks, Estes Park Brewery, Town of Estes Park, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, The UPS Store, The Rock Inn, Colorado Bicycling, Partners of Estes Park, Insurance Associates, Colorado Lottery, The Sample Guy, Borealis Media and Irona Design.
The Fit Family 5 Mile could not have happened without the many community volunteers and support from other groups in Estes Park including; Boy Scout Troop 8, Eagle Rock, Kiwanas Club, Lions Club, The Learning Place, the Auxiliary Police, Partners of Estes and many individuals too numerous to name.
They all worked very hard to make sure all the details on race day were taken care of, Thank you!
Race results are posted below this letter. We hope to have a fun event again next year and on behalf of LLEV and FFE thank you for all the support!!
