Colfax Fly Feet Youth Program

New in 2024! Our new Colfax Fly Feet program invites at-risk youth to participate in the Colfax 5K for free. We are inviting youth and their chaperones to run/jog/walk our Colfax 5K. All participants receive a Colfax 5K race shirt and race bib. After completing the race, they’ll visit our Finish Line Festival for food, music, and a visit to the Colfax Fly Feet tent where they will receive 2024 Colfax Fly Feet participation gifts.

We are excited to open the door to the sport of running, a lasting lifetime activity that is low cost and easily accessible.

For our inaugural year, we are offering groups of youth (and chaperone) entries to our Colfax Marathon Charity Partners that reach at risk youth, including but not limited to youth on free and reduced lunch, youth with life or learning challenges, and youth with chronic illnesses or health issues.

Is your nonprofit interested in joining our charity partners program and participating in our inaugural Colfax Fly Feet program? Email to learn how to join for 2024 (we have a few spots left for groups) or get more information for 2025. We’d be honored to have your youth join us for an introduction into the running world!


Colfax Fly Feet was inspired by the community work done by Steve Sander, a great friend of the Denver Colfax Marathon.
