Walkers, joggers, and runners of all abilities are welcome. The flat, chip-timed 5K begins at 9:30 and the 1-mile at 10:10. All registered participants will receive finisher’s medals, T-shirts, and a taco “fiesta” at the finish line sponsored by Riviera Maya.

“We created this event to help support young breast cancer survivors and the Young Survival Coalition,” said Christine Malloy, a Jefferson resident and cofounder of the Taco Trot 5K. “We were inspired by those around us who have been diagnosed with this disease, and wanted to create a fun, festive event to celebrate life and survivorship while raising money for this amazing organization.”

The fees are as follows:

Taco Trot 5K (3.1 miles) – $36 through February 14, $41 through April 1, $45 on race day
Family Run (1 mile) – $28 through February 14, $32 through April 1, $35 on race day
