Denver, City Park


Event Park Hill Pizza Pie 5K/10K/1M

If you’re in Denver in the autumn, Denver’s City Park 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! Get in your 1 Mile, 5K or 10K race, run, stroll (whatever it takes to get you across the finish line), grab your finisher or awards medal and then grab a slice (or two) and start training for all the holiday feasts with some scrumptious Park Hill Pizza Pie.

So get ready to earn it — you know you’re gonna grab a slice or two!  And remember, this is the first event in the City Park Winter Running Series.  Now if you’re ready to register for the Park Hill Pizza Pie, just click that button!  Otherwise, read on; all 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, beginning 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 fun run
  • All events are professionally timed with results streaming automatically to Athlinks
  • All events, with the exception of the 2 new events, (see New Events section below) include finisher and awards medals with the standard registration fee
  • All events count in the scoring for the series finisher and awards medals
    • Series scoring is simple; 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 the 1 Mile field, 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 — Bare Bones Christmas **
  • Dec 23 — Christmas Carol Classic
  • Jan 06 — The Resolve
  • Feb 11 — Le Cours de l’ Amour (The Course of Love)
  • Mar 10 — Bare Bones Lucky Charm **
  • Mar 17 — Lucky Laces

** New Events — ‘Bare Bones’

Both the Bare Bones Christmas (Dec 16) and Bare Bones Lucky Charm (Mar 10) are, obviously, Bare Bones events. Here’s what that means; low registration fee while giving you the opportunity to add items during the registration process.  The items will include a Christmas Ornamental or Lucky Charm Medallion and/or short-sleeved tech t-shirt (long-sleeve upgrade available).

Christmas Double and the Lucky Double

The Bare Bones medallions 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 Bare Bones 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 shirt, you will receive a specially designed Christmas Double or Lucky Double shirt.  And there’s more!  Each event in the series this year includes a 1 Mile event that starts at 8 am while the 5K and 10K begin at 9.  If you register for and complete the 1 Mile AND register for and complete the 5K or 10K on that day, you will have completed the Christmas Squared or the Lucky Squared and will receive a specially designed shirt for that accomplishment!  To participate in the Double opportunities you must register online by no later than the 1st of the event’s corresponding month.
