One change this year: A costume contest. “Years back, people started dressing up for the race,” says spokesman Matthew Vermillion. “This year, we’re making it official and holding a contest with judges.” Other new offerings include: a start village where Radio Disney will entertain the kids and Orangetheory Fitness will lead warmups; post-race yoga with Karma Yoga Studio; and a beer garden featuring local craft brewers like Wynkoop, Renegade and Great Divide.
Your registration fee — $40 in advance, with discounts for seniors and children — provides resources to improve childhood literacy and high-school graduation rates.
Activities start at 8 a.m. with race-day registration; the first wave of runners departs at 10:15 at the southeast corner of the park (South Downing Street and Louisiana Avenue). Register and get more information at unitedwaydenver.org or select Runner’s Roost locations.
