A newbie-turned-race-veteran lends event ideas for beginner runners looking to cruise through their first finish lines.
If you like the city life, but still relish time outdoors, you’ll love this race—the perfect mix for urban mountain mommas.
Known for live, local bands lining the course, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon & 1/2 (runrocknroll.competitor.com) knows how to make a race feel like one long jam session. Starting and finishing in downtown Denver, runners dash along city streets before heading through nearby parks back-dropped by the southern Rocky Mountains. After crossing the finish line, toast your accomplishment with a frosty bev and boogie down to more live music at the outdoor after-party.
