NCYH Power Play

To raise funds for youth ice hockey leagues in northern Colorado, NCYH Power Play celebrates another great American pastime: running. Hosted at the NoCo Ice Center, the third-annual USA Track & Field-sanctioned event lets loose runners of all ages and ability levels in the 5- and 10-kilometer distances. Launching from the starting line early in the morning, racers beat a path through areas such as the Highland Meadows neighborhood, Highland Meadows Golf Course, and the backyard of the local high school's beleaguered principal. Back at NoCo Ice Center, a beer garden welcomes returning runners with chilled brews, water, and snacks.
