"We looked for all kinds of public figures who might inspire other people to run," explains Regan Petersen of the Denver Marathon. "We had a great list, and it came together pretty quickly." That list includes Olympic swimmer Rowdy Gaines, former Bronco Bill Romanowski, Opie Gone Bad's Jake Schroeder, CBS4 sportscaster Vic Lombardi and Survivor's Ami Cusack. Online bidding started last Friday and ends at midnight Sunday, October 7; to find out more details on the auction, go to www.blacktiecolorado.com or just grab your star at www.denvermarathon.com. That's also the place where you can register for the October 14 Denver Marathon, which includes a half-marathon, the relay and a kids' run.
