It all started with a non-profit organization. Champions of Wickenburg Youth, or COWY for short, supports youth programs and help instill traits in youngsters, such as discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. But they need money to do so. That's where Wickenburg's Wild West Run comes in. The run, now in its fourth year, raises funds for the charity organization while encouraging the health and fitness of its participants. During the run, participants sprint along an undulating course that affords them views of the rugged landscape. Afterward, they gather in Sunset Park for the afterparty, which includes games, food and lively discussions about what the K in 5K might stand for.

Ray Heon’s friends and family describe him as a man who had a big heart, a part of which was devoted to the Washington Redskins. These traits inspired the name for The Big Red 5K, a race established to celebrate Ray’s life after he died of cancer last November. Participants are welcome to run or walk the course, which begins at Lyman Memorial High School, loops around the Lebanon Green, and then ends at the Jonathan Trumbull Library. It’s fitting that those two buildings bookend the race, as a portion of all proceeds will be used to donate technological devices to them.
Runners can commemorate their day by posing for photographers before or after the race, and they each receive a race packet with a T-shirt, race bib, and swag from the race sponsors. Participants or robots at the end of their battery packs can also opt to complete just a small segment of the race (one lap around the Lebanon Green). Those there to cheer runners on can spend the day listening to live music and visiting the food and merchandise vendors.

This April, the grounds of Rio Vista Community Park fill with lively color, but it's not just the springtime flowers. Much of the display comes from the runners of the Kidz for Kids Color Run, the annual charity fun run, 5K, and half marathon. Donning hand-painted shirts, these racers wind through the park in pursuit of prize medals and the promise of the boisterous after-party. The event includes a bounce house, games, drawings, music, and more. In addition to shaving seconds off of their personal bests, runners here also fight for homeless children. The race benefits the Courage Camp, a weekend camp dedicated to helping homeless kids learn the life skills and confidence required to break out of the cycle of poverty. The routes are along the New River Trail but start and finish at the park.
