Chico Parks is hosting a Fantasy 5K & 1K Fun Run to benefit the beloved Caper Acres Children's Park renovation effort.
It takes place on Saturday, May 14th, at Sycamore Field in lower Bidwell Park, just west of Caper Acres. Check in is at 7 a.m., and the run begins at 8 a.m. You can register through Friday at Fleet Feet in Downtown Chico. The cost is $30 for Adults and $20 for Children. The 1K run is $15.
Proceeds will be used to help with renovations in the city's Master Plan for the park, which can be viewed on the City of Chico web page. Among other things it calls for a Monkey Face Climbing Feature, Robin Hood's "Lair", zip lines and revitalizing the Castle.
