In 2004, the Cottonwood Classic 5K introduced an Elementary School Division of the race. This division is designed to encourage children to
practice good health and physical fitness. Children at the elementary level are welcome to participate alone or as a team with faculty and staff from their school, or family members. There is a discounted
entry fee for all participants in this division, and a special awards bracket. Please call 720-977-5914 for more information.
