Turf Paradise says
(PHOENIX) On February 6th costumed runners will take to the track at Turf Paradise temporarily replacing the horses for a special charity 5k and fun run event. Registration is now underway for The Royal Run.

The Royal Run is a national series of royal themed 5k running events with a touch of fantasy. Runners and walkers can come as a princess, knight, wizard, dragon, or as they are. On Saturday February 6th this event comes to Turf Paradise for the first time.

The Royal Run is currently seeking participants, especially charities seeking an event that can be used to raise funds by sponsoring teams or runners. To sign up go to

The 5k course is 3 full laps around the sealed and packed down dirt track to the finish line. There will be free Grandstand admission to Turf Paradise for all participants allowing them to take in a full card of live horseracing which takes place after the run. Participants will receive a royal cape, playing cards, and a coupon good for hotdog or hamburger plus a drink.

In addition to live horse racing Turf Paradise will feature BBQ tents, 2 full outside bar areas, and a play area for the kids.

Turf Paradise General Manager Vince Francia said, “Turf Paradise is proud to host this unique event. We only hope our horses don’t get jealous as people run on ‘their’ track. The horses make it look easy. It will be interesting to see how fast two-legged runners can circle our track.”

In addition to offering live local racing through May 8th the season also includes

Special Fiesta Sundays throughout the season featuring Mexican food and music
Super Saturday February 13th
Wiener Dog Races March 12th
Camel and Ostrich Races March 26th
