DSC_0487Race and Arrival Time

The race begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. at Evergreen Middle School, 2059 Hiwan Dr., Evergreen. Be sure to arrive at least 45 minutes early to allow time to park and walk to the start line. If you haven’t yet picked up your t-shirt, bib, and timing chip, you can do so at the start line. Onsite registration opens at 6:45 a.m.

To Reach the Start Line

From Denver, exit I-70 west onto Evergreen Parkway (Exite 252). Proceed on Hwy. 74 east 3.5 miles to Bergen Parkway (the fifth light from I-70). Turn left and volunteers will direct you to parking.

Parking and Shuttle Information

Please allow 20 to 30 minutes to walk to the start line from the parking area. After the race, free van transportation will be provided from the finish line back to the parking lot between 9 and 11 a.m.


The scenic 5K (3.1-mile) course follows gently rolling terrain through residential areas, beginning at Evergreen Middle School and ending with a festive finish line at Nick’s Pro Fitness. Runners will start at 8 a.m., followed by walkers. In the interest of safety and fairness to competitive runners, strollers and leashed dogs will only be allowed at the back of the walk.

Post-Race Party

Race participants and their families and friends are invited to join the finish-line festivities at Nick’s Pro Fitness. Enjoy refreshments, music, prizes, and lots of clean mountain air! The party features fun activities for kids of all ages including a bounce house, face painting, balloon sculptures, games, music, and various vendors.
