Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

This Sunday morning, early risers who make it out to the Denver Marathon will be treated to a diverse array of local talent along the race route. Perhaps taking a cue from the Bolder Boulder, marathon organizers fielded a number of suggestions from the runners before settling on a half-dozen acts, ranging from surf-inflected sounds of the Beloved Invaders to the jump blues of the Delta Sonics to the rustic alt country of the Hollyfelds, to play music during the race. Follow the jump for a full list of acts and where they'll be stationed.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
