Where do I park on race morning?
There is a ton of parking throughout the Stapleton neighborhood and at the Central Park Rec Center all of which offer a short walk to the start line. If you are planning to imbibe, we do recommend taking public transportation or a ride sharing service. The start line is a 1-mile walk from the Central Park light rail station.
Is it okay to bring children?
Absolutely! We are a family-friendly event! Strollers are good to go for the race. We just ask that you stay towards the back and sides at the start of the race. Kids under the age of 5 are free to join as your +1 and will not need to be registered. All children aged 5+ will need to register!
What about dogs?
Totally! We do it all the time. Well behaved dogs are welcome to run the race and attend the post-race party. Doggie water stations will be available. If you are running with your dog, we ask that you start along the sides and make sure to keep the leash tight and less than 6-feet when running with the crowd. Dogs must be on a leash in the park at all times.
What do I need to bring to bRUNch?
Yourself, a good pair of running or walking shoes and a healthy appetite! If you are planning on consuming adult beverages make sure to bring your ID, no ID no drinks for you! And please, please, make sure that if you plan on imbibing in more than several drinks that you Uber, Lfyt, or get a ride home. WE DO NOT CONDONE DRINKING AND DRIVING ever. So please drink responsibly.
The festival space has plenty of grassy space so bring lawn chairs, picnic blankets, etc.
Also, since we do run in all weather conditions we recommend bringing a change of socks for those wet runs as nothing is worse than eating brunch with wet feet. Bring and wear layers. This is Colorado and we can get all four seasons in one day!
Can I check my bag?
Bag check will be available in the giant Greenbox Self Storage truck.
Can I win awards?
There will be prizes for top finishers in both the 5K and 10K. Top overall female and top overall male. Other prize drawings will happen throughout the duration of the event. So even if you aren’t the “fastest” there will still be opportunities to win some other cool things!
