Starting at Memorial Park in Arvada, CO and winding through the beautiful Ralston Creek Trail, this is a scenic race! As you run, all of your fans will be able to see you from the start line, then walk less than 1/3 of a mile to see you at two different points before cheering on your finish. This is a very spectator friendly venue!
