There is just one wweek left until Labor Day! That means you only have a few weeks left to train for the Labor Day Half Marathon on September 6. The race features a half marathon, a 10K and a 5K. The race will be held at Parker’s Salisbury Park, and the courses will travel along the banks of the Cherry Creek. Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome. The flat, fast course will help propel you to a new personal best time!
All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, a technical running shirt in men’s and women’s sizing, professional chip timing, and aid stations with water and Gatorade. Gels will be available on course for half marathon runners. Free photo downloads will be available to everyone after the race.
The half marathon will have an early start time of 6:30 a.m. to avoid the hot summer sun. Participants in the 10K will head out in the same way at 7:30 a.m. and then the 5K at 8:30 a.m.
Gift certificate awards from RNK Running and Walking, Parker’s specialty running store, will be awarded to the top three age group winners in every distance and they will be available for pick up at the store for up to two weeks after the race. There will also be a packet pickup in the days leading up to the event at RNK Running and Walking.
Registration is now open. The race welcomes both runners and walkers. For more information, log onto www.coloradorunnerevents.com.
