Participants of the Hop, Skip & a Jump Start 5K will have the option to run, crawl, or toddle their way across the finish line this Sunday! This family-friendly event takes place at 9am at Crescent Park, along the Platte River Trail and just outside of the Children’s Museum of Denver.
This fitness extravaganza has a race option for each member of the family, including a stroller-friendly 5K along the South Platte River, an Infant Crawl, Toddler Trot, and a Kid Course. Prizes will be awarded for the top three male and female 5K runners, as well as the top male and female runners in the 5K ’12 and under category.”
