Food and Drinks
Race will start and finish in the amphitheater of the Hudson Gardens & Event Center. Course will take participants through Hudson Gardens to the Mary Carter Greenway. Course is flat and fast, and very scenic with a view of the Platte River almost the entire way.
Dogs are not permitted at the race. Strollers are allowed, we just ask that if you are pushing one, you stage towards the back of the start line at the beginning of the race.
Parking is available in the 3 lots on the grounds or across the street at Arapahoe Community College. Please do NOT park at the Denver Seminary as we need to be respectful of their Sunday worship or on the side street to the north of the Event Center.
