Are you looking for a fun way to get a head-start on your new year’s fitness goals and support student scholarships? Lace up your sneakers, grab a bottle of water and join the MSU Denver Alumni Association for the 2018 Colfax Marathon, May 19-20!

The Colfax Marathon is the ultimate urban tour of Denver, offering a range of distances that work for anyone – from beginners to advanced runners/walkers. Make your way through Mile High Stadium or the Denver Zoo, and across downtown Denver, all while enjoying views of the Rocky Mountains. The weekend will be topped off with an awesome after-party in City Park!

Most importantly, when you choose MSU Denver as your charity of choice during the registration process, you support our students in their efforts to cross the graduation finish line.

How to register:

  • Learn more about the Colfax Marathon and register here
  • Enter the race of your choice (Marathon, Half-Marathon, Urban 10 Miler, Relay, 5K)
  • During the registration process, choose MSU Denver as your charity of choice from the drop-down menu

All registered runners who choose MSU Denver as their charity will receive a custom MSU Denver race T-shirt and an MSU Denver back bib for race day. Training runs will be scheduled leading up to the event to get everyone motivated and in shape for the big day!

Early season pricing ends Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2018, at 11:59 p.m., so register soon for the best deal.

Start the New Year off in a healthy way by getting fit and raising money for MSU Denver student scholarships. Together, we will transform lives when you run with us.
