5k Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk

Via Las Vegas Sun Photo Archives

Cirque du Soleil's "Spermato" Wayne Skivington runs with the crowd during the 2009 Run Away with Cirque du Soleil 5K Run at Springs Preserve.

Cirque du Soleil is offering residents a chance to "run away with the circus" for a day with their annual 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk. Join dozens of artists from Cirque du Soleil's Las Vegas shows for this ONE DROP World Water Day Event.

In the past few years, the event has transformed from an idea in the heads of a few Cirque and casino employees to a high-profile event involving nearly 2,000 Vegas Valley residents.

This year, Cirque is pairing with the Springs Preserve, a 180-acre national historic site which served as the original oasis of Las Vegas. The preserve includes 8-acres of botanical gardens, as well as a series of walking trails where the 5K run and 1-mile walk will take place.

The first 1,200 pre-registered participants will receive a free event t-shirt and one raffle ticket for a chance to see one of the many great Cirque du Soleil shows on the strip and a grand prize drawing for tickets and airfare to see the show "La Nouba" in Orlando, FL. and park passes to Walt Disney World.

Interested individuals can register for the event online.
