The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra announces a new event for the whole community, the Beethoven 5k! The outdoor event is a 3.1 mile, professionally timed race for runners and walkers with activities for the whole family. The race will be held on Saturday July 18, 2020 at beautiful Buffalo Park on McMillan Mesa in Flagstaff AZ.
In honor of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, we invite the community to join members of the FSO, whether your speed is andante, allegro or presto, around the mostly- flat, foot friendly path. Known for his bold, powerful and expressive compositions, the 5th Symphony epitomizes Beethoven’s talent and force. In a 1k Kids Dash, young runners may even see Beethoven himself running alongside!
Athletes will be professionally timed and can track their results on Chronotrack and Athlinks. Registration rates are as follows:
EARLY BIRD $30 UNTIL MARCH 16
LEVEL 1 $35 UNTIL May 17
LEVEL 2 $40 UNTIL JULY 17
DAY OF (ONSITE ONLY) $45
