Over 30,000 cheering revelers - young and old - will line the streets as the parade winds through the heart of Downtown to the sound of bagpipes beginning at noon.

Welcome to the 16th year of the Grand Prix of Running. Please join with us for 6 exciting and challenging running events. Run one race, or run them all! It promises to be another exciting year of running! We are expecting nearly 6000 runners to participate in 2013. Starting in March with the 5K on St. Patrick's Day and ending with the Great Pumpkin Runs in October, we cover the Colorado running season.
