Event Information
NCA has made the decision to cancel our IN-PERSON National Celiac 5k due to COVID-19.

HOWEVER, May is Celiac Awareness Month and the VIRTUAL RUN/WALK WILL GO ON AS PLANNED! We are not promoting gathering with others for a walk or run at this time, however, would like to encourage individual engagement and social media participation on May 30th!

For more details and to continue supporting the mission of NCA, please consider signing up to be a virtual runner below. We apologize for the inconvenience with this decision, but we want to make sure we keep everyone safe and healthy.

What does it mean to be a Virtual Participant? 

If you take a picture of yourself walking or running on May 30th, post it to social media and tag #NationalCeliac5k, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 gift card from Marathon Sports or a gift basket from BFree!
**NEW** HOLIDAILY BREWING, Colorado’s Dedicated Gluten-free Brewery, will also raffle off a gift basket with certified gluten-free beer & swag.

All proceeds from this virtual event will benefit the National Celiac Association (NCA), a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to educate and advocate for those with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, their families, and communities throughout the nation.
Registration Pricing
Virtual 5k Run/Walk- $15 per participant.
Bib and Swag Pick Up

Race Day Schedule

Use this as a good excuse to get outside and get some exercise.

Gluten-Free Food Bank
Please consider making a donation of gluten-free food to your local food pantry or click on the link below to make a financial contribution to NCA's Gluten-Free Food Bank. We have seen a spike in need for food assistance and we do not anticipate this need abating anytime soon.
