A favorite race of Runner’s World magazine, the Colfax Marathon is the ultimate urban tour of Denver. Past routes have included Mile High Stadium, the Denver Zoo, downtown and beautiful views of the majestic Rocky Mountains.

Early-bird registration is open now, and participants can register up until the day before the races. All runners who choose MSU Denver as their charity will receive a custom MSU Denver marathon T-shirt and back bib for race day.

To ensure that your participation supports MSU Denver students:

  • Enter the race of your choice (marathon, half marathon, urban 10-miler, relay or run/walk 5k).
  • During the registration process, select MSU Denver as your charity of choice from the drop-down menu.

Already signed up? No problem! You can edit your registration to choose MSU Denver as your charity. 

Not a runner but still want to help? Volunteer to staff the MSU Denver tent in the Charity Partner Village or make a donation by selecting “Other” in the drop-down menu and entering “Student Emergency Aid Fund” as the designation.
