City Park Winter Running Series Denver

SERIES REGISTRATION: It’s very simple. Most importantly – You MUST select your events from the drop-down boxes at the bottom of the registrant information form, which comes up right after you click ‘CHECKOUT’.  Please follow the instructions below:

  • You will select the number of registrants from the drop-down box for the ‘Series Ticket‘option, which is $5.00 per participant. The $5 fee does NOT include event fees, which are listed under ‘Additional Items’.
  • After that you will proceed to ‘Checkout‘.
  • The event selections and costs are at the bottom of the ‘Checkout’ form under ‘Additional Items’.
  • Select as many from each item as you wish. For example, if you are doing all 5K’s, just select the 5K Pizza Pie and click ‘Add to Order‘. If you are selecting that event for more than yourself, just repeat that step. Then click the 5K option again and select your next event and add it to your order. You can easily scroll up top to see added items and costs.
  • Follow this process for any of the distances and then check out when you are finished.

Please remember! You MUST select your events from the drop-down boxes at the bottom of the registrant information form, which comes up right after you click ‘Checkout’.

The series accommodates all ages and abilities. Start anew or stay on track with your training over the winter with 1 Mile, 5K and 10K distances at each event. Run all events at the same distance and see how you’re progressing or use the series to build from a mile to a 10K over 5 months. Or pick and choose and mix and match distances to accommodate everything from a chill run in a gorgeous park to specific workouts; speed workouts, tempo runs or mile repeats. The City Park Winter Series is an excellent environment for focused training in a competitive environment.  One of my old favorites; work on one mile and 5K negative splits; testing the discipline in a progressive buildup in the first 5K at a pace that leaves enough in the tank to run the second 5K about 30 seconds faster. If you use it well, by the time March comes around, the City Park Winter Series will have you race-tested and road-ready – with a wall full of medals and a heart full of great memories to show for it!

Pets and strollers are welcome at all events. Everyone knows the rules; keep them leashed – be aware of and courteous to other event participants – pick up after them and don’t let them wander off 🙂

Why run the City Park Winter Series?

There are so many reasons; from themed holiday events that keep you in the spirit of the season to the myriad of benefits of a series that provides the opportunity to measure your training goals over 5 months. And yes, it’s winter in Colorado. To be sure, we’ve had some awesome winter-weather runs, but remember, Denver boasts 300+ days of sunshine per year; so on the average these events take place in beautiful Colorado sunshine!

INSPIRATION: Your participation benefits our nonprofit event partners, which include Denver Children’s Home, Heart & Hand Center, Bluff Lake Nature Center, Mile High Lab Mission and others. Use your influence in the running community to add additional support to a nonprofit of your choice through our affiliate programs; a portion of every registration that comes through your unique affiliate link will go to you or the nonprofit of your choice, depending on how you set it up. For more information about this opportunity email nick@featonthestreet.com.

TRAINING: Running in City Park gives you the ability to really test your training discipline; are you focusing on running negative splits? If so, track your miles and implement your discipline on the certified 5K course; better yet, track not just your miles, but your 5K split time on the 10K course to ensure that you’re not wasting all your energy in the first 5K. Then, compare your times over the months to see if your training between races is paying off. Doing this will ensure that when the spring season comes around, you will have utilized the winter months to stay steady and build your strength and speed.

Whatever the reason, whatever your ‘FEAT’ – your purpose, your mantra, your goal – join the Colorado tradition and participate in the City Park Winter Running Series!

Your Race. Your Pace. Your Feat.
