Fiesta 5K Run / Walk
In 1977, it was parishioner Paul Griego's idea and dream to hold a three mile race as a Fiesta Mexicana activity. Each year since then the parishoners of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church host the annual Fiesta Mexicana 5K Run/Walk in the Oakland Community. Runners and walkers of all skill levels meet at the Oakland Community Center. You can enter as a runner or as a walker.
There are categories for age and gender classifications in the run only.
For more information contact the run co-ordinator, Artie Gonzales (E-mail: ArtieObo@att.net) or 785-232-4114.
The Fiesta Mexicana 5K Run/Walk was held on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 8:00 am, at the Oakland Community Center.
