Denver Veterans Day Run • City Park

The 10th Annual Denver Veterans Day Run, on November 11th, 2018, is a memorial 5K & 10K fun run starting at Denver's scenic City Park. Recognized as “Denver’s Run for Veterans Day” by Mayor Michael Hancock, this fun run is open to runners, joggers, walkers, kids of all ages, and dogs are always welcome. The route takes runners through the beautiful City Park running trails in downtown Denver. The mission of the Denver Veterans Day Run is to celebrate and show support for our Veterans and their untiring efforts on Veterans Day weekend.

The Denver Veterans Day Run event begins at 8:00 AM and ends by 10:15 AM. With registration for the Denver Veterans Day Run, you will receive an exclusive race day T-shirt and finisher's medal.  

The run will take place RAIN, SNOW or SHINE, just like our Military and Veterans we so proudly support! We look forward to seeing you there! 

100% of your registration (and donations!) goes directly to helping Colorado Veterans. If you cannot make the date but still wish to donate to the cause, visit our donation page
