Photos: bRUNch Run at Stapleton Central Park

First they ran, then they brunched. Denver joggers gathered at Stapleton Central Park over the weekend to participate in five- and ten-kilometer races, followed by a mid-morning feast prepared by some of the city's top brunch kitchens. Bacon Bloody Marys and medals were the rewards for finishing. Proceeds from the event went to Metro Caring. Photographer Ken Hamblin tagged along for the sweaty run and the sweet rewards that followed. For more photos, see our complete slideshow.
