This is not your ordinary run; the Brain Booster 5K is so much more! Set at the USAF Academy Field House with beautiful views of the Air Force Academy and overlooking Colorado Springs. This is a challenging but fun course professionally timed by Colorado Running Company. If you’re not a runner or walker you can come out to cheer on the runners and enjoy the festivities that include prizes (for paid registrants), vendors, food, music and more. The Brain Booster 5k is a family event and friendly dogs are welcome too!
This event is on a military installation please DO NOT bring backpacks, hydration packs are allowed. Be sure to have your ID, car registration and insurance to get on to the base.
Are you coming in from out of town? Need a place to stay? We have partnered with the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott on Baptist Road in Monument. Go to Book your group rate: Rachael's Ribbons of Hope 5k Brain Booster >> to reserve your room at our special rate.
Again this year we are offering the “Remote Runner” category. With this category you sign up as a runner but don’t have to be here to participate. If you preregister you will receive your bag and t-shirt in time for the run. Then you run or walk in support of the Brain Booster 5K and Rachael’s Ribbons of Hope from where you are. We will have a board at the event showing our Remote Runner’s names, city and state where they are at. If you register after the preregistration cut off we will get your bag and shirt out to you as soon as possible but you will still be listed as a Remote Runner on the day of the event.
Rachael's Ribbons of Hope Foundation is a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization our mission is to raise awareness and money for pediatric brain tumor research at the Brain Tumor Institute at Children's National Medical Center. This foundation is in memory of Rachael Newton, my daughter who passed away at the age of 14 from a brain tumor.
