Leg 1: Urban River - 6.4 milesFrom Ferril Park in City Park, enjoy Vibrant Colfax and the Capitol, and run right through Denver’s Firestation #1. Then it’s down to the Bike Path, Confluence, the Platte, and end with a stadium run-through at the home of the Broncos. Details...

How does it all work?
First, pick a team captain. Yo, Captain: you can register (and pay for) the whole 5 person team, or let them register (and pay) individually, just make sure they know your team name. (If you're registering individually, make sure to join a team or find your team name when you register.) Corporate and government employee teams, make sure you register in the Corporate Cup or Government Cup - cash prizes at stake. Second, get your team members' customized training plans online from RunCoach. Third, plan for race day: transportation, hand offs, meeting up in Denver's City Park for the After Party. Fourth, and most important - have fun!
Parking and RTDPark at the start of your relay leg. All relay exchange zones are located near RTD stops. Relay teams receive RTD tickets to get from the end of your race leg back to your car, or to City Park, or back from City Park.
