Salida Recreation’s New Year’s Day 5k will take place at 10am on Monday, January 1. The Rec Department would like to encourage people to pre-register this year! Due to construction at the Salida Scout Hut, race start and finish will be at the Boathouse Cantina. Cost is $10. This is a beginner friendly event, so if you’ve never participated in an organized walk/run event before, this is the perfect place to start. Moms and dads, strollers are welcome at this event and pet owners, your well behaved dogs are also welcome. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers and best costumes and there will be hot drinks, sparkling cider and snacks for everyone.
