Getaway 5K/10K Denver – Race Day Information September 10

Parking & Arrival at Cherry Creek

  • There is plenty of parking on-site both at the Lake House lot and Hobbie Hill parking lots. Event staff will direct participants where to park when they arrive.
  • Please arrive via the Dayton Street entrance (Near Cherry Creek High School)
  • Participants will be able to park for free by showing their race bib

Registration and Bib Pickup

  • Don’t forget about Packet Pick-Up at Runners Roost in Denver on Saturday, 10a-5p!
  • There will be a small window of time in the morning for new race registration and bib pickup for those already registered from 7am-8:15am. Unfortunately, there will be a hard stop at 8:15am since our team has many things to do in order to make sure the race goes off without a hitch!
  • The registration and bib pickup area will be located near the start line. Look for the large orange and blue, Getaway 5K/10K inflatable arch.

Race Schedule and Logistics

  • 10K starts at 8:30am – 3 water stops with water and Gatorade
  • 5K and 1 Mile Walk starts at 8:40am – Walkers please start at the back of the pack
  • Kids Run will start at 9:30am – 2 water stops with water and Gatorade
  • We will send runners out in waves of 10-15 runners every 20 seconds. This will allow all runners to get out on course without crowds and backups. Please pay attention to race staff as they announce waves.
  • The course is a manicured trail but the surface is compacted dirt. There are some paved spots but please plan accordingly.
  • Course Marshals will be at each section the course will cross over open roads. Please follow the directions of the course marshals at all times.
