The Fastest Growing (and shortest)  Running Event in CO is back!!! 

Get registered for the race by clicking here

Don’t miss our most popular event of the year!  Don’t worry it’s more FUN, then RUN! A .5K race is only .31 of a mile, so anyone can do it!  Plus, just incase you feel fatigued, we’ll have a “donut” aid station at the halfway point.  The sugar rush should propel you to the finish line!

This 1,660 feet of semi-cardio is located on the west side of Palmer Lake, Colorado and ends at O’Malley’s Pub. We’ll celebrate our fabulous feat with food, drink and football!!

The Palmer Lake .5K is an fundraising event for Awake Palmer Lake, a non profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the lake.  All proceeds go to help fund the beatification of the town’s namesake. 

The .5K is Oct 6th – ​Click here for all the details
