We are aware of the current status of the COVID-19 virus and we want you to know that we are acting with an abundance of care to make our environment as safe as possible for our guests. We are complying with Safer at Home and the Denver Mother's Day 5K has been switched to a virtual race.

What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. This type of race eliminates large gatherings and also abides by the social distancing guidelines. You get to run your own race, at your own pace and time it yourself within a 2-week window. The 2-week window for this virtual race is 05/01/2020-5/15/2020.
