Downtown. Billings Starts Here!

Purple 5k

LogoPurple 5K – Sunday, March 30th 2014

The Downtown Billings Alliance, Clark Marten, and Back Country Chiropractic are excited to present the 5th annual Purple 5K!The Purple 5K run and the Crit continue to grow as they empower the community to be actively involved in the fight against homelessness. All proceeds from the races go to the Spare Change for Real Change program. Over the last 5 years, these events have grown such that, as of this year, the Spare Change for Real Change program has granted $33,250 to local organizations that work to alleviate homelessness through education, housing, social services, and re-integration.

The race begins at 9:00am Sunday morning at Grandview Park, then goes down through Pioneer Park, winds through some downtown neighborhoods, and finishes under SkyPoint. Following the race will be snacks, beverages, music, and an awards ceremony. The top three male and female winners in each age group will get to donate $50, $25, and $10 to the non-profit of their choice!
