Runnin’ of The Green

We celebrated St. Patty’s Day a few days early in downtown Denver by participating in the 24th Annual Runnin’ of The Green 7k.  With over 4,000 runners, this was definitely the largest race we have participated in so far.  The large crowd and St. Patty’s Day atmosphere made for a fun run!  Everyone was dressed in their green leprechaun best….even the dogs!  The race began at Denver’s historic Union Station, wound through the LoDo area of Denver and ended on Wazee Street.  Click here for a view of the course.

Runnin of the Green is known for its’ great after-race festivities.  With Celtic music, corned beef sandwiches and free beer, it was a very Irish way to end a great race!
