Local music serves as soundtrack for the Denver Marathon

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.
