Touted as the Ultimate Urban Tour, we like to think of the Colfax Marathon as the Ultimate Denver Tour. Marathoners and running enthusiasts will hit the streets to tackle this year’s Colfax Marathon on May 17-18 and you can bet the Colorado Lasik specialists at Vision Care Specialists will have a front-row seat to cheer on the competitors.
Distances for Everyone
If you’re not quite up to the 26.2-mile marathon that winds its way through some of Denver’s most iconic landmarks including Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Sloan’s Lake and, of course, Colfax Avenue, there are six other races over the two-day extravaganza that will give every runner at every level a race to compete in from the 5K to the marathon relays. If you don’t feel like lacing up the running shoes, there will be plenty of fun for non-racers including a wedding, Colorado entertainment along the route and a post-race celebration lakeside at City Park. Competitors would be quite thankful for your cheers to keep them pounding toward the finish line!
It’s a Ball for Charities
The Colfax Marathon was founded in 2006 by the cities of Denver, Aurora and Lakewood to celebrate Denver’s famed Colfax Avenue—the main thoroughfare running east to west from Denver to Aurora—and to promote healthy and fit communities. Along with improving the metropolitan area’s health and fitness, more than 120 local and national charities benefit from the Colfax Marathon’s DaVita Charity Partners Program. Runners run and charities benefit. It’s a win-win for sure!
