Men’s Event: Run, Ride, Recover
Zuni Street Brewing

This one’s for the boys. Neighborhood partners are coming together for a run, spinning and recovery event — and recovery includes beer, in this case. The workout will begin with a run through Highland that will be led by Lululemon ambassador Erik Sunde, co-owner of Citius Fieldhouse, and then transition to a ride in the brewery led by High Ride Cycle. Lululemon ambassador Jace Buzek of Well Set Denver will then lead the guys through a stretch and recovery session, and the athletic apparel company will pick up the bar tab for the first fifty attendees. Visit the Eventbrite website for more information or to register for the free event.
