Register Today for the 2016 Fiesta 5K for ALS Research!

After a devastating cancellation in 2015, the Fiesta 5K is back in action!

Join us on Saturday, May 7, 2016 for the Packard Center’s signature event, the 2016 Fiesta 5K for ALS Research.  This 5K walk and run through downtown Baltimore raises money for the Center’s groundbreaking research programs.  Since 2007, the Fiesta 5K has raised $2.4 million for ALS research and with your help, that total will continue to climb!

Last year, the Center was forced to cancel the Fiesta 5K due to the unrest in Baltimore City, resulting in a devastating financial loss to the annual event.  The Fiesta 5K is back again this year with the hope of making this one the best one yet!

Signing up is easy.  Just visit to start. You can form a team, join an existing team (we already have 65 teams registered), sign up to run, walk or volunteer on race day.  

Online registration will close at midnight on Friday, April 29 and official race t-shirts are only guaranteed for the first 1, 800 registrants, so sign up today!

See you on May 7 at Power Plant Live!
