Official Race Results

Certificates will be mailed to the top finishers in each age group.

The 8th annual Arbor Day 5K was a great event! In spite of the crazy wind, nearly 300 people participated, which means Tempe will receive 150 new trees.

The week leading up to the Arbor Day 5K, Tempe Parks staff teamed up with students in Tempe's Kid Zone Running Clubs and students at Arredondo Elementary School to plant 4 new trees in Tempe. The tree planting at the Arbor Day 5K was the 5th new tree planted that week.

Thanks to the generous support of our partners and the community, the past Arbor Day 5K events have provided a significant contribution to the Trees for Tempe program and Tempe's urban forest.

Thank you for your continued support of the Arbor Day 5K and the Trees for Tempe program!

Where does the money go? 
Race proceeds will go to benefit the Trees for Tempe program. After the 2008 summer monsoons destroyed more than 400 city-owned trees, Tempe was left struggling to find the resources needed to replenish its tree population. Now, with the revival of the Trees for Tempe program, residents and local businesses can take part in reconstructing the city’s landscape, one tree at a time! 

What can you do?
The Trees for Tempe program welcomes monetary contributions and donations of time. There is no minimum dollar amount required to donate, and every cent is appreciated. Residents, organizations and local businesses can also donate their time to help replant the trees. Either way you choose to donate, you will have a direct impact on the quality of life in Tempe now and for years to come!
