October Full Moon Run

Thurs, Oct 5th, 8pm @ Spring Canyon Park

We’re switching up our normal Thursday run by pushing it back and running with the moon! It’ll be full and bright, but still bring a headlamp. We’ll meet at the Spring Canyon Park, 2626 W. Horsetooth Road, at 8:00 PM by the dog park for a 3-5 mile run.

Tortoise & Hare Series Underway!

The Tortoise & Hare 2017-18 series is officially underway, with the Rolland Moore 4K a smash hit on Sunday, October 1. It was wonderful to see so many out there for the season opener. We had a total of 150 runners and 10 volunteers.

Results are now available, and check out Photos of the event.

We’ll see you again for the Spring Creek 5k on November 5.
