Run for a more walkable Denver!

Walk or run on behalf of WalkDenver during the Colfax Marathon!

People (and runners!) are pedestrians by design, and that’s why WalkDenver is excited to partner with the Colfax Marathon this year as part of our People on Colfax initiative. The Colfax Marathon is the Ultimate Urban Tour along Colfax Ave on May 14th-15th, 2016and includes a marathon, half marathon, urban 10 miler, marathon relay, and 5K.

Thousands of walkers and runners participate in the Colfax Marathon each year, highlighting the need for safe and reliable pedestrian infrastructure across the city. You can walk or run on behalf of WalkDenver to raise awareness and funds for our mission to make Denver the most Walkable city in the Country!

Register for a Run: Visit the Colfax Marathon website for more information about the races and to register. During registration, you will be asked if you plan to raise funds or awareness for a charity partner – click “yes” then select WalkDenver from the drop down menu!

Raise Awareness and Funds for WalkDenver:Once registered, have fun helping to raise awareness and funds for WalkDenver! Our goal is for each runner to raise at least $50 on behalf of WalkDenver. Share your stories with us and and on social media about why you love running and walking, and why WalkDenver’s work on pedestrian infrastructure and safety is important to you!
