Central Park, Denver, Colorado
As always, there will be a final participant email with details that comes out the week of the event, but here is some information:
Early Packet Pick-Up for the 2019 Hoppin’ Half:
Thursday, April 18, 2019 – 4-7pm // Runners Roost Stapleton // 7308 E. 35th Ave., Denver, CO 80238
Strollers are welcome, but please be advised that the distances of 10K and longer do have some dirt trail and there is one hill in particular at about mile 4.75 that is a bit gnarly. We’ve had stroller participants on it before without incident, but definitely something to be aware of.
Dogs are also welcome with the usual rules; leashed, cleaned up after by their pet human and, without question, absolutely friendly and comfortable in crowded spaces with a lot of distractions!
Course: Here is a rough breakdown of the course concrete/dirt trail ratio – please go to the bottom of this page for course maps. You can click through for elevation, etc. The 10K/10M & HM share the same course with varying turn-around points along Sand Creek Trail.
Concrete Trail Dirt Trail
1 Mile 100% N/A
5K 100% N/A
10K 75% 25%
10M 55% 45%
HM 65% 35%
