Run along the Rio Grande
JUNE 1, 2019
Copyright 2013. Runoff Runoff Marathon. All Rights Reserved.
Course Description: The Runoff Runoff 6K begins at the Creede ballpark and follows the meandering Willow Creek floodplain trail out and back, finishing at the Ball Park. Runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages are welcome! Friendly dogs are welcome too, but they must be kept on a leash and owners must pick up after them.
Time: 11:00 am
Why a 6K? You don't see many 6K races out there, so you might be wondering - why a 6K instead of a 5K? The Runoff Runoff started out as a World Water Day event to raise awareness to local and global water issues. The distance of 6K symbolizes the average distance that people have to walk to get clean water in Africa. Even though we don't have to walk farther than the kitchen tap to get clean water here in Colorado, water is an increasingly precious resource that needs protecting. By running the Runoff Runoff, you are supporting efforts to protect and enhance the headwaters of the Rio Grande for improved water quality, riparian health, wildlife and fish habitat, recreation and community health.
Packet Pick-up: 4-7 pm Friday, May 31 at the Creede Chamber of Commerce; 5:30-11 am Race Day at the Creede Ball Park.
Goodies Included with Registration: All runners will receive a performance t-shirt, a ticket for the bbq and local beer, a commemorative pint glass for finishers and of course a guaranteed fun time with friends listening to live music!
