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
