The 24th Annual Cinco-Cinco 5K Run/Walk will be held on the Colorado State University campus. The family friendly event is held in memory of Gil Gutierrez, a Colorado State University employee who was hit by a drunk driver while out on a training run in August 1993. Gil subsequently died from his injuries. One of his fellow runners and also a CSU employee started the run to honor Gil and to provide scholarships for deserving CSU students. To date, 115 scholarships have been awarded for over $90,000.
The course is flat, fast, and traverses the beautiful CSU campus.
