Coronavirus - COVID-19 Update
Over the past weeks, we have been watching and evaluating the coronavirus impact on the U.S. and on our race weekend. Our event is just a few days outside the 8 week window for the current event moratorium, so our goal to be safe is to find a new 2020 date in the very late summer or fall.
We are working with the City of Denver on a daily basis to determine the best possible option for the marathon weekend. The City of Denver has not finalized their process for impacted city special events so decisions will not be made until April or later. Denver does of course follow state policy on coronavirus, so there are many considerations.
We really appreciate your patience during this difficult time for all. This url will have the most recent update on information regarding our event. Updated 3-23-20.
