COLFAX MARATHON RESCHEDULE: Due to the impact of COVID, the Colfax Marathon is scheduled October 16-17, 2021. Race Weekend details will be finalized after the Broncos schedule is announced in May. (For example, a Sunday home game may mean the main race day will be on Saturday, not Sunday. The 5K would then change to Sunday). The Colfax Marathon will return to its historical May dates in 2022. If you chose to defer to 2021, you will be emailed a personalized code (non-transferrable) to register for 2021 mid spring. If your plans have changed, you will be able to choose to defer to 2022 at that time. Registration will open mid to late spring 2021 for new and deferred registrants.

Urban 10 Miler - a local's favorite
It’s the marathon course in just 10 miles! Perfect if you love the idea of running downtown, through the stadium, eclectic college campus, and waterways – but do not want to tackle a full 26.2 miles. It’s a point to point race, that starts a bit later at RMCAD, and then finishes with the marathon, half, and relay in City Park. Your bib has an RTD ticket to get back to your car. A Denver favorite!LEARN MORE>
