Running Strong Since 1980
If ever in the Denver, Colorado area in May look into the Colfax Marathon & Half Marathon.
Ran the half marathon there this past weekend and a very nice course, lots of people (7000 runners), nice family finish area with vendors and very well organized. The course starts at City Park in Denver and runs through and around the park for the first two miles. At mile two you enter the Denver Zoo and run past the various wildlife and birds for an entire mile. You then enter onto a street lined with million dollar homes for the next mile or so. At mile number 9 you run through the middle of the Aurora Colorado Fire Station lined by the firefighters giving you high fives and encouagement and you pass through. Then through various neighborhoods and back to City Park for the finish.
Did definitely notice a difference with the higher elevation compared to here in the tri-cities area but not as bad as I thought it would be.
If you ever get a chance run this one,
It sounds like it was a lot of fun! And breath-taking. :)
Sounds like a good one !
