To pick up your bib, you must present a photo ID. If you’re unable to attend pick up at Runners Roost, you may designate someone to pick up your bib but they must present a hard copy or electronic copy (photo on phone) of your photo ID - no exceptions.
Bibs can also be picked up on race morning. If you plan to pick up on race morning please plan for extra time.
For those planning to imbibe, your ID will be checked in exchange for a wristband. Have family and friends meeting you at the finish line? They can purchase a tumbler to enjoy the post-race festivities!

Where do I park on race morning?
There is a ton of parking throughout the neighborhood and at the Central Park Rec Center. All offer a short walk to the start line. If you are planning to imbibe, we do recommend taking public transportation or a car sharing service.
What do I need to bring with me?
Yourself and your running or walking shoes! A healthy appetite. If you are indulging in adult beverages you MUST bring your ID. You must present your ID in order to get your wristband and bib.
The festival space has plenty of grassy space so bring lawn chairs, picnic blankets, etc.
As this is Colorado, also remember to bring layers. The weather can change suddenly.
P.S. Bring your old running shoes to be recycled!
What’s with this weather?
Colorado is at its finest this week and we are having all the seasons. We ask that you come prepared on Sunday for sunshine, snow and rain.
It is our recommendation that you bring some extra layers. This way when you cross the finish line, you have some warm gear to put on.
Can I run with a stroller?
Yes! We just ask those running with a stroller stay towards the back and sides at the start of the race.
Can I run with my dog?
Totally! We do it all the time. Well behaved dogs are welcome to run the race and attend the pre-race party. Dog water stations will be available. If you are running with your dog, we just ask that you start to the sides and make sure to keep the leash tight when running in with the crowd. And anything about leashes. Dogs must be on a leash in the park at all times.
Kids under the age of 5 are free to join as your +1 and will not need to be registered. All children aged 5+ will need to register if they want to join in on the race. They get goodies too! NEW this year is a kids fun run at 11:00AM.
There will be prizes for top finishers in the 5K, 10K and 15K. Top overall female, top overall male. Along with age groups.
Results stations will be at the finish line and you will be able to find them online right here.
