The Hoppin' Half includes a race distance for everyone! Spring into action with a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 10M or Half Marathon and bring the kids along for the Kid's Cottontail Fun Run!
With the exception of the fun run, there will be finisher medals for all participants. There will be awards medals for Overall Male and Female winners and age-group medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for age-group divisions (10 year increments).
Make it a DOUBLE by running the 1 Mile or 5K at 7am and then a 10K, 10 Mile, or Half Marathon at 8am!
Strollers are welcome, but please be advised that the distances of 10K and longer do have some dirt trail and there is one hill in particular at about mile 4.75 that is a bit gnarly. We've had stroller participants on it before without incident, but definitely something to be aware of.
Dogs are also welcome with the usual rules; leashed, cleaned up after by their pet human and, without question, absolutely friendly and comfortable in crowded spaces with a lot of distractions!
Course: Here is a rough breakdown of the course concrete/dirt trail ratio - please go to the bottom of this page for course maps. You can click through for elevation, etc. The 10K/10M amd HM share the same course with varying turn-around points along Sand Creek Trail.

1 Mile 100% N/A

10K 75% 25%
