The Pink Taco's motto is to, 'Keep it Real, Keep it Simple' and an upcoming 5K and Kids Dash event is keeping with that philosophy! The Pink Taco 5K and Kids Dash - sponsored by the authentic Mexican restaurant with locations in Chicago, Los Angeles and Las Vegas - will take place on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

The Kids Dash will kick off the taco fun at 6:00 p.m. All Kid Dashers will receive a Taco Tuesday race bib, a finisher medal and a taco at the finish line. The 5K begins and ends at Chicago's iconic Montrose Harbor, with a start time of 6:30 p.m. Pink Taco's authentic "Pink" tacos will also be handed out to all who cross the finish line.


Participants are encouraged to show their love of tacos by wearing the Taco Tuesday dri-fit shirt provided with event registration. In addition to walkers and runners, mothers with children in strollers are also invited to spice it up and get in on the fun!

"We are so excited to partner and 'Taco-bout' the Pink Taco, which has developed a cult following nationwide, with locations soon to open in Boston and Miami," said Aaron Del Mar, ASE founder. "This event is going to be epic - and will help to make Tuesdays great again for the Chicagoland area!"

Event proceeds will be donated to charity partner Tickled Pink, a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to prevention and early detection of breast cancer.

Awards and a customized Taco Tuesday 5K medal will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers, and the top three runners in each age group. An awards ceremony will commence at 7:30 p.m. for the participants of the 5K.
