Online registration closes Saturday, October 10th. You may register on the day of the event, though we strongly discourage this option. If you do, please arrive at least by 8:30 a.m. Registering early gives you time to recruit friends and family, as well as collecting pledges that will help support the American Lung Association.
The route is a 5K (3.1 miles) on park roads. The famous amphitheatre stairs will be the grand finale of the route. Participants will climb the stairs as they finish the 5K!
Bands Along the Course!
Enjoy a variety of bands and musical styles as you take on the challenge of Red Rocks Park!
We encourage children of all ages to participate in this event. Please bring your kids and stay for the music! As a reminder, the course does end by climbing the amphitheatre stairs so strollers and wagons can be challenging on that leg of the race.
Stay for the Party!
Celebrate your accomplishments on the Plaza after the race. Enjoy food, interactive exhibitors and entertainment following the race.
As a non-profit organization, the American Lung Association in Colorado considers the registration fee and pledges a donation and unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds. The race will be held rain or shine.
