The Run/Walk course starts at Stanley Park, goes under Rt. 36, and then turns right and follows the paved path around Lake Estes, returning back to Stanley Park for the finish. Total distance is about 3.8 miles. Come enjoy the beauty of a run or walk around Lake Estes, with views of the Continental Divide, snow-capped peaks, and wildlife along the path. You'll go past the Dog Park, Lake Estes Dam, the Marina, the 9-hole Golf Course, bridge over the Big Thompson River, and 2 town parks along the path. It's a good training event at high altitude (7522 ft.) for later 5 Ks, half-marathons, and marathons. It's also a fun fitness walk or stroll if you just want to take in the views and take your time. While you participate in the Run/Walk Event, the children aged 2 1/2 through Third Grade will be occupied with their own Fitness Jamboree at Stanley Park, as described below.
