Kick off the Fall Season with this healthy, fun celebration of the world's most popular flavor! Join Rodelle and the Northern Colorado community to burn some calories before indulging in local vanilla treats!
The Rodelle Vanilla Day 5k, Saturday September 23, will be the centerpiece of a morning of family fun. The flat and fast 5k course will be run on neighborhood streets immediately to the north of Fossil Ridge High School in southeast Fort Collins, starting and finishing outside the Rodelle offices on Precision Drive.
After your race/run/walk, enjoy live music, a hay bale obstacle course for the kids, and a ton of Vanilla-themed fun for everyone. The post-run expo will include a small batch vanilla beer taste testing, vanilla inspired food samples from local eateries, and a fun prize giving for top teams, age groupers and overall winners. All finishers will also get a vanilla themed race shirt.
All race proceeds will benefit social programs for communities in the vanilla growing regions of Madagascar.
