Race For Open Space

January 27, 2015

Thank you for participating in the Fourth Annual Race for Open Space (RFOS) 5K, 10K (changed from a 10 mile because of course conditions),  on Sunday, May 1, 2016, with the start and finish at Star K Ranch in Aurora, Colorado, along the Sand Creek Regional Greenway.

Thanks for supporting your local open space nonprofit, Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership. Special thanks to all the runners and volunteers who braved the weather!  And even more thanks to Liz, Joy, Tony, Pat, Brian and all the great professional from Aurora Parks, Recreation, and Open Space which hosted us at the beautiful (even in the snow) Star K Ranch and Morrison Nature Center.

All proceeds will go to improving trails and open space along the Sand Creek and providing environmental education opportunities to youth!

Thanks for joining us to support the places you love – and love to walk and run and we invite you to participate in 2017!


Take Action!

About the Greenway

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems.

This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community.

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail. We invite you to become acquainted with our wilderness in the city.
