The Fastest Growing (and shortest)  Running Event in CO is back!!!

Has COVID, or lockdown, left you a bit out of shape?  Is even a .5 (yes, point 5) K just too far to walk/run, even for the reward of a donut and a beer?  Don't worry, the folks at Awake the Lake have you covered!!

This year's .5K event won't be a "run" event at all, but rather we invite you to participate in our special 2020 Drive By .5K (slowly of course) in your car/truck/van (feel free to decorate but keep it fun, tasteful and family oriented as always!), pick up your awesome t-shirt, famous Eurosticker and other swag from the comfort of your own car, enjoy the views of beautiful Palmer Lake (from the comfort of your car), meet our sponsors (socially distant, of course), grab a donut, and even a beer (OK, a coupon redeemable for a beer - no roadies)!!

**** October 4, 2020 - 9:30am - 12:30pm ****
(20 vehicles every 15 minutes. Upon registration you will be asked to select your timeframe)
