Volunteer Park to host Cinco de Mayo Fiesta 5k and Taco Truck Challenge

(UPDATE: Here is information on the 2013 event) — CHS figured you would want to start training. While the idea of combining anything involving a “Taco Truck Challenge” and running a 5k sounds pretty damn gross, there is nothing stopping you from enjoying one or the other. Apparently, South Lake Union hosted last year’s challenge. In 2012, there’s a run involved. You can learn more and register to run at the Fiesta 5k website. It’s the only currently planned Capitol Hill foot race that we’re aware of. Give it your best. We’ll be checking out the tacos.
