The Marathon Award is given out at spring and winter commencement ceremonies to MSU Denver alumni, employees or community advocates who exemplify “the Roadrunner Difference.” 

Representative of Roadrunner students who sprinted across Denver’s busy streets to get to class from the early days of the University, the Roadrunner Difference embodies that spirit of determination that our students use to be successful on campus and in their careers. Our graduates are diverse, tenacious, primed, purposeful and entrepreneurial, and this award honors someone who takes those characteristics to reimagine what’s possible for themselves and their communities.
