(insert Cucho’s name/or company here) as well as our Latin Folkloric dancers.  Savor the Latin flavor in few ethnic culinary samples.  Bring the whole family as there will be games, inflatables, and even a piñata for the kids!
 
Participants are encouraged to run/walk in their most creative outfit representing any Hispanic nationality or U.S. nationality.  In addition to the individual 5K awards, an award will be a presented to the most original national outfit; the 1st place overall male and female 5K run winner will receive a $100 CASH PRIZE; and there will be many door prizes including a $150 CASH PRIZE giveaway.
