Denver comes alive this spring with an exciting marathon race - the Colfax Marathon. Lace up your sneakers and get ready to run this race past some of Denver’s most iconic landmarks and surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Rocky Mountains.
Runners can enjoy views of urban lakes and historic neighborhoods all along the 26.2-mile route, which passes Denver attractions like Mile High Stadium, Sloan’s Lake, City Park, and Colfax Avenue.
If you want to run a shorter course, join in for the Colfax Half Marathon, with a 13.1-mile route that takes runners through the Denver Zoo with live entertainment cheering you on all along the way.
The Urban 10-Miler takes runners through Mile High Stadium and past the stunning scenery of Cherry Creek. The Bellco Colfax 5k is perfect for newer runners, joggers and walkers. And, the Marathon Relay lets teams of five share the thrill of running the race in three different divisions for more than $50,000 in charity awards.
After the race, celebrate your accomplishments at the Afterparty & Beer Garden at City Park and enjoy livemusic from Chris Daniels & the Kings, great barbecue, beer and plenty of post-race fun. The Colfax Marathon is May 17th & 18th. Registration is $20-$95 per person, depending on age and race choice.
