Presented by the Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District.
Mix of dirt and pavement, fairly flat. This 5K is an out and back. The race starts at Charlie's Place Animal Shelter and utilizes the path through Clear Creek County Open Space right along Clear Creek, continuing on Silver Lakes Dr and out to County Road 308 for a short distance. Racers will then turn left on to Alvarado Road and continue to the Lawson Whitewater Park, where there is a water station (for humans and dogs) and restrooms. Runners will follow the same course back, finishing at Charlie's Place.
The roads listed above will not be closed and you will encounter some traffic. Runners and dogs must run on the shoulder of the road. Vehicles have the right of way. There will be course marshals at all critical intersections, but they will not be stopping traffic. You must stop for traffic and obey all traffic laws.
If you run with music, please consider not doing it for this event. If you must, leave one ear bud out.
