Remember how much fun we had running in the Colfax Marathon last summer? We had 43 runners racing on behalf of WalkDenver, including six relay teams and 13 individual runners, and a party tent with beer and food for them all after the race. Oh, and fun training runs leading up to the race to get in shape!

We’ll be doing it again on May 20 & 21, 2017! This year, we are inviting individual runners, relay runners, and Saturday 5K runners and walkers. Take your pick, there is a distance for everyone in the Colfax Marathon on “longest, wickedest street in America.” So as you are making your New Year’s resolutions, add fitness and the Colfax race to your list. The best time to register is NOW to secure the lowest rates and receive a super cool bonus Colfax shirt — but you must register before December 30!

If you are running an individual race please register HERE. During the registration process, make sure you select WalkDenver as a non-profit partner you wish to support. Relay runners, please email Leanne at run4walkdenver@gmail.com and you will be placed on a team.

WalkDenver believes that our streets should be safe for all users, for both transportation and recreation. Whether you are going on your Sunday morning run, walking your dog, pushing a stroller to a bus stop, riding a bike, or driving a car, your trip should be safe and enjoyable. That’s why WalkDenver leads Denver’s Vision Zero Coalition, a group of community partners working together to eliminate all traffic deaths and serous injuries on our streets.

Please join our team and support the work of the Vision Zero Coalition! Runners will have an opportunity to participate in the fundraising campaign Safe Streets for All. Last year, the average Colfax Marathon runner raised $580 for a nonprofit they chose to support. Let’s bring the competitive spirit into running for safe streets! We will provide fundraising tools and ask that you commit to a $150 minimum fundraising goal.

We cannot wait to Run4WalkDenver with you in 2017! REGISTER today before rates go up on January 25!
