The Daffodil 5K Challenge is a race for our community to come together and get active. The Daffodil Parade is a very unique event that combines four parades in four different cities — all in one day. It is the celebration of communities young and old. The Parade is in its 83rd year of uniting and promoting Pierce County.
The Daffodil 5K Challenge likewise is just as unique. The Challenge takes runners through four cities across Pierce County and includes each of the parade routes in the process. Four independent 5K races when combined becomes The Challenge.
Run or walk in one city or take the full challenge. Race the clock, or a co-worker. Run as a family, or run to challenge yourself. Run the race, and then stay and enjoy the parade. The day is yours, and this is our community celebration.
The event is sponsored by South South Running and Nike Running.
