JOIN US for Colorado’s original ¾ half marathon!
5th Annual Run Wild | Sunday, August 28, 2016 | Elk Ridge Park, Castle Pines, CO
The 9-mile course is perfect for the racer who has outgrown the standard 10K but isn’t quite ready for the full 13.1-mile half marathon.
The 4-mile course is a nice way to begin to build up your endurance from the standard 5K on your way to that 10K race.
The 1K Color Me Wild run provides an opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy a unique experience that is focused less on speed or athleticism and more on fun with family and friends. Run through Elk Ridge Park in your favorite (or least favorite) white shirt and volunteers will douse you in a variety of color (safe, biodegradable). Proceeds from this race will go to Y.E.S.S. (Youth Education and Safety in Schools).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I run with my dog?
Is your dog well-behaved? And do you promise to keep him/her on a leash? Then sure, bring your pup along.
Can I run with a stroller?
Sure! Be aware that some of the course includes dirt trails and roads. While the course is well-maintained, you'll want to make sure your stroller is sturdy enough for some off roading.
Is the course hilly?
Yes. Both the 4-mile and the 9-mile courses are hilly. You'll definitely feel your legs when you're done!
