Event Scramblin’ Scrooge 1M, 5K, 10K & Doubles

Bah! Humbug! … It’s going to be a ‘Double Dickens’ of a Christmas season this year!  The Scramblin’ Scrooge 1M/5K/10K & Youth Fun Run is the newest addition to the City Park Winter Running Series and the 2nd of 7 of the series’ holiday-themed events.

We all know there’s nothing like a good run to shake out the gloom and get ourselves in the spirit of the season!  So we’ll run out all the season stress and hustle and bustle at the Scramblin’ Scrooge on December 16th and then celebrate in earnest with the Original Dickens Carolers, Jolly Ol’ St. Nick and yes, Scrooge himself at the Christmas Carol Classic on December 23rd.

This event is professionally timed with finisher and awards medals (scoring also counts towards series medals), tech t-shirts and more!  Don’t forget to wear your ugliest sweater or favorite holiday garb .. we dare you to dress as the ol’ miser, himself, and capture the award for the best worst humbug of the lot!

We’ve ‘Doubled the Dickens’ in our holiday drive for Denver Children’s Home this year with the addition of the Scramblin’ Scrooge 1M/5K/10K on December 16th!

Here are your options – Each registration comes with a traditionally awesome, seasonal, authentic finisher medal and a really nice, comfy tech t-shirt.    The Daily Double, Christmas Double and Double Dickens just get increasingly a little more awesome!
