Run Colfax, Help PawsCo

The race that has been dubbed “Denver’s Ultimate Urban Tour” will take place in May, and PawsCo is a charity partner of the race, which means runners can choose to represent—and even fundraise for—PawsCo while they run.

Despite its name, the Colfax Marathon includes a variety of race lengths to accommodate people of all fitness levels: a 5K, 10-miler, half marathon, 4-person relay, and full marathon.

  • Friday, May 19: Health and Fitness Expo
  • Saturday, May 20: Colfax 5K
  • Sunday, May 21: Colfax Marathon, Half Marathon, 10-miler, and Relay
