Additional info

Liberty Run in honor of Potts Parthenia "Potts" Jones has been a mainstay in the Denver running community for the past 30+ years, and has volunteered at hundreds of races and is always smiling and giving out hugs. She is was inducted in 2010 to the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. And even if you've never had the pleasure to meet Potts, she's definitely worked a race that you've run, and has cheered you through the finish line. Unfortunately Potts was recently diagnosed with Cancer and her medical expenses are mounting. This year the Liberty Run will be in her honor and a portion of proceeds will be donated to her. Potts has been there bringing us through our fights, it is time we return the love and help her.

Free Pint Glass:

All finishers will get a commerative Liberty Run pint glass!
