Daily calendar: Run for fun at the Irish Snug

You are invited to run, trot, walk, stagger or crawl every Thursday at either 6:15 or 6:30 p.m., weather permitting, by joining the Irish Snug Running Club, a large, loose and fun-loving group that takes a 5K loop each week before settling down to eat and drink. Tonight, a representative from the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation charity running group will be also there to sign up team members to run the October Denver Rock'n'Roll Marathon (or the half-marathon or relay race), with special perks included: free race entry and free group training, in addition to the race's unique lineup of live music along the route.

Hoof it to the Snug, 1201 East Colfax Avenue, tonight and register at 6 p.m., or do the same online beforehand (it's free to become a member of the Snug Running Club, either way); go to for details. Get more info about DetermiNation at

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
