Join us for the 2nd annual Christmas Carol Classic 5K/10K & Tiny Tim 1K and be part of this themed event in the true spirit of the Holiday Season. And help us to engage in the Gift of Giving to Denver Children's Home, an organization that has been dedicated for 136 years to restoring hope and health to traumatized children and families!
The season is upon us, so warm up the vocal cords and get ready to carol, run and walk!
Carolers begin at 7:45 a.m.
Tiny Tim 1K begins at 8:40 a.m.
5K & 10K begin at 9:00 a.m.
The Original Dickens Carolers - in full Dickensian costumes, these professional singers warm the season with cheer and that good old traditional holiday theme!
Operah on Tap - To compliment the Dickens Carolers, this group brings the booming sound of operah to the expo area and the course!
Boyers Coffee - And speaking of warming the season, how about some nice hot coffee, hot chocolate, and hot spiced cider; it wouldn’t be Christmas without it!
Santa Claus - Yes, you heard right! Jolly Old St. Nick will be there with his elves – how many runners, in full brigalia, have the opportunity to have a running photo with Santa?!
Tiny Tim 1K - Gifts for all 1K finishers; just reach into St. Nick’s bag and pull out a gift for the kids - surprises abound!
The Giving Tree - Bring something special, be it a gift wrapped, unwrapped, cash, sweets - anything at all to place beneath the Denver Children’s Home Giving Tree!
Denver Children's Home - This event wouldn’t be the same without a testimonial from one of the youth at Denver Children’s Home to let us all know why we should feel a little more thankful for what we have and a little more willing to share!
