Before you ruin yourself on Cinco De Mayo, make a run for it at the Tacos & Beer 5K in Long Beach.
Hosted by Exitos 93.9 FM on Saturday the 4th, this event is genius. Not only does it start at 9am (sleep in time!) with a trail race thru the hills and wilderness, but it ends with mariachi music, DJs like the Mexican Dubwiser, live bands such as Zapoteca Roots, comedy, and most importantly food trucks & a beer garden.

- Carne Asada (Premium Domestic Skirt Steak)
- Al Pastor (Barbecued Pork)

Early Taco Wave starts at 9:00am with a Zumba warm-up one hour before, and first dibs on the tacos and beer goodies.
If racing isn't your thing, then join the Late Taco Wave at 9:45am for more of a jog or "salsa".
Each contestant will get a finisher medal and prizes will be given away for Most Creative Costumes, Team with Most Members, and the Top Three Runners.
The festivities for the whole family to enjoy go until 8pm. Click here to Register at Active.com for the Tacos & Beer 5k!
