THE Denver 5k! Denver's Iconic Sloan Lake is the setting for the return of 'THE Denver 5k'. Celebrate with friends and family as you race around the lake in the shadow of Denver's skyline. Group pricing applies; youth and senior pricing are offered as well! Held at the start of September, THE Denver 5k is the perfect 'cool down' to the racing season! 

We'll have an Elite Wave to start before the regular start time! This is to ease congestion on those trails. The Elite Wave is open to runners that can run a 5k in 26 minutes or less. See schedule for start times. Overall awards will be awarded to those in the elite wave (based on gun time). All other awards (including age group awards) and rankings will be combined between all waves (based on CHIP times). That means, if you start out with the regular wave (at 9:00 am) and race faster than those in the elite wave, you can still WIN! 


Always a favorite, Belong Designs once again is producing the Denver 5k race shirt!  Belong Designs is a Denver company that uses our amazing part of the country as inspiration for their creative designs.  Cut and sewn just for our Denver 5k racers, we're always proud to feature Belong's work at this event!

The 2021 Version of The Denver 5k race shirt is dark blue with a unique, colorful city skyline design!  

All participants in the physical race receive a Denver 5k pint glass!  (Pint glasses cannot be shipped.)


Free Beer!

Joyride Brewing is our favorite local microbrew and is located right across the street from the race site! Bring in your bib for ONE FREE beer (see tear-off on race bib. Expires September 30th.)


Live Music

Ugly Rumor is a high-energy Classic Rock and Roll Cover Band  of experienced musicians  who deliver good old American rock & roll that cooks.
