If you’re in Denver in the autumn, City Park in Park Hill is the place to be; autumn leaves, an iconic view of the Denver skyline and the Continental Divide … and the Pizza Pie 1M/5K/10K & Little Pepperoni Fun Run!
Yup, pizza in the park on the 11th of November. You can get your run on, grab your finisher or awards medal and then grab a slice (or two) and start training for all the holiday feasts with some delicious Park Hill Pizza Pie.
So get ready to earn it – you know you’re gonna grab a slice or two! If you’re ready to register for the Park Hill Pizza Pie – click that button! Otherwise, read on; the deep dish of data on the City Park Winter Running Series is below.
This event kicks off the City Park Winter Running Series!
So gobble those carbs and hit that trail, ’cause we’re going to be out here running – snow, sleet, wind or, … well, it’s Colorado, so 300+ days of sunshine-a-year! When the going gets tough – the tough grab another slice o’ Park Hill Pizza Pie! Oh yeah, and we are runners, after all, so when the going gets tough we actually do go out and crank out at least a couple miles!
Sorry, … I digest … er, I mean digress.
The City Park Winter Series has 7 themed events (2 new in the 2017/2018 season – see New Events section below) over 5 winter months, begining in November with a gaggle of pizza gobbling goons at the Park Hill Pizza Pie and slipping slowly into March madness and the grand finale at Lucky Laces!
- All events include 1 Mile, 5K, 10K (on a certified course) and a youth run
- All events are professionally timed with results streaming automatically to Athlinks
- All events include finisher and awards medals with the standard registration fee
- All events count in the scoring for the series finisher and awards medals
o Series scoring is simple; must participate in and complete 3 events to qualify. Scoring is based on your top 3 places in your age division. All ties are broken by combining your fastest 3 times and then dividing to bring all the times down to a 5K average. The 1 Mile events do not qualify for anything other than the competition within themselves, but the 5K and 10K can be mixed and matched.
- Strollers and pets are welcome at all events (you know the rules)
- You can register through the series website or you can register for single events
Here are the events:
- Nov 11 – Park Hill Pizza Pie
- Dec 16 – Scramblin’ Scrooge **
- Dec 23 – Christmas Carol Classic
- Jan 06 – The Resolve
- Feb 11 – Le Cours de l’Amour (The Course of Love)
- Mar 10 – Lucky Charm **

** New Events – Christmas Double and Lucky Double
In the spirit of celebrating our holiday favorites (Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day), we’ve added two events, each of which occurs precisely one week before its traditional predecessor. Scramblin’ Scrooge 1M/5K/10K will occur on December 16, one week before Christmas Carol Classic. Lucky Charm 1M/5K/10K will occur on March 10, one week before Lucky Laces.
The finisher and awards medallions for Scramblin’ Scrooge and Lucky Charm are designed to stand alone OR go along with the medallions given away at the traditional series events which take place the week following each of the new events.
We call this the Christmas Double and the Lucky Double. If you register for and participate in both of the themed holiday events, you will have completed the Double and rather than receiving the standard event medal and shirt for Christmas Carol Classic and Lucky Laces you will receive a special edition Christmas Double or Lucky Double shirt and medal! To participate in the Double opportunities you must register online by no later than the 1st of the event’s corresponding month. CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW TO LEARN MORE!
