Description:

The 2014 Federal Cup 5K Run and Walk with a 1K Kids Fun Run will be here before you know it!

We are planning a great event this year as we celebrate the 30th Running of the Federal Cup 5K.

The Federal Cup is a 5K timed run and walk event at the Denver Federal Center.

If you want to establish a team contact the Race Director.

We also have a Children's Fun Run - a 1K distance- it's Free but registration is required.

We do not have a paper registration form. If you are unable to complete the on-line registration, please contact the Race Director for options.

Order early if you want a T-shirt. We will have a limited number of the new 2014 moisture wicking technical running shirts and cotton t-shirts available. Order your t-shirt by APRIL 4 to have the best chance of getting the t-shirt size you want.

If you want periodic information about the Federal Cup 5K and you are not on the email list, contact the Race Director (see tab to the right) and provide your email address. Monthly NewsBlasts will be sent with changes, info, and tips about this year's event.

There will be an early bib pick-up event on Thursday May 8th (11am-1pm at DFC Bicentennial Park).

In 2014 the Federal Cup 5K will use chip timing. This timing method may require you to arrive a bit early or attend the early bib pick-up event. Contact the Race Director if you have any questions.

Course description:

The 2014 course is in the works, we hope to keep it close to the 2013 course. In the mean time, a map of the planned 2014 course and the recommeded parking lots are available at the links below.

Directions to start:

The start and finish will be near Bicentennial Park off of Main Avenue bounded by 4th Street and 4th Place.

Parking:

Entering Gate 1 off of Kipling Street puts you on Main street, just stay on this road and you'll see Bicentennial Park on the right. There is a large parking lot west of the park.

Awards info:

Awards are given to the top 3 individuals and teams (CO-ED, Mens, Womens or Walk) in each category. Overall individual winners are not eligible to receive age group awards in addition to overall awards. Teams must have a minimum of 4 members. Team placing is based on the cumulative time of the first 4 team members to cross the finish line. Cumulative time for the CO-ED team is based on the first four finishers that include both genders. This means that a CO-ED team whose first four finishers are all male will drop the time of the fourth male finisher and include the time of their fastest female finisher. The walk teams are open and the first 4 finishers are scored.

Additional info

If you are a WHEELCHAIR PARTICIPANT please contact the Race Director using the tab to the right.

The Federal Cup 5K is open to everyone, but is especially focused on the participation of federal employees, military personnel, retirees and contractors (employed by the military or federal agencies), and their families.

Chip Timing

You can pick up your chip and bib during the early race packet event on Thursday, May 8th. Otherwise, your bib and chip will be issued to you the morning of the event at the registration area.

You MUST WEAR THE CHIP during the event to be scored. The Federal Cup 5K is not responsible for chips not put on properly. Return your chip at the finish line to avoid a $30 penalty.

This exciting family event is also intended to promote participation through a team competition. Teams need to be at least 4 people. A CO-ED team needs to have at least one female and one male participant. There can be multiple teams from the same office, organization or family.
