The Annual Beat Beethoven's 5k was held on April 6, 2014 at 9:00am in downtown Fort Collins. The run began with Maestro Wes Kenney's baton launching the opening notes of Beethoven's 5th Symphony at the race starting line. The goal was to complete the course before the music ended and therefore "beat" Beethoven (approximately 33 minutes).  We welcomed all ages and abilities of runners, walkers and music lovers.  Proceeds benefited the Fort Collins Symphony's youth education and community engagement programs. Join us next year on April 5, 2015!     

Runners were timed with MYLAPS BibTag timing,
and results are posted online at runlimitedfc.com.

Awards:
Two Fort Collins Symphony tickets have been awarded to each division's winner ($70 value). The male and female divisions are as follows: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+

The overall male and female winners have been awarded two season tickets to the 2014-2015 Symphony season - a $500 value!
