Event Information

One breath and one step at a time, on October 8th, 2017 the American Lung Association in Colorado (ALAC) and an anticipated 2000 Coloradans will run/walk through Red Rocks Park to take steps in our fight to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. While the park has been visited by many, the American Lung Association in Colorado’s Run the Rocks offers a course that few have had the opportunity to experience as it is the only event of its kind at Red Rocks Park and Ampitheatre. In addition to the 5K run/walk, we will be adding a 10K route this year in celebration of the 10th anniversary.

Participants as teams or individuals will walk or run through the scenic mountain park on October 8th and finish by climbing the famous amphitheatre stairs. During the race, runners will be encouraged by six unique local bands. At the culmination of the run/walk, participants will enjoy a wide variety of exhibitors, entertainment and local craft beer on the plaza.  The 5K run/walk will support the critical programs of the American Lung Association in Colorado. This year’s event anticipates it will raise over $100,000 to support programs and services in Colorado

5K Run/Walk – $40
10K Run – $50
Children 12 and under – $20
Registration for Run the Rocks.

The run/walk will begin from the Upper North Parking Lot at 9:30 a.m. and will have exhibits immediately following.
