Running a race for charity is a great way to practice running away from an angry grizzly bear or toward a charismatic mountain lion. Keep pace with nature with today's Groupon: for $15, you get entry into the The Greenway Foundation's Mile High Mile at Invesco Field, plus a T-shirt, (up to a $30 value), held on Sunday, April 17, with registration starting at 7 a.m. This Groupon needs to be redeemed for preregistration by April 7 to meet the T-shirt deadline.
Seasoned sprinters and fleet-footed families alike can challenge themselves for fitness and philanthropy during the fourth-annual Mile High Mile, a family-friendly 1-mile run that supports The Greenway Foundation's efforts. With a route that encircles Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium and finishes on the 50-yard line, races run in separate waves for families, small children, older children, 16-year-old cyborg sprint-bots, and adults, which keeps competitions close and fun. Proceeds from the race will benefit The Greenway Foundation's Spree program, which educates children on the history and reclamation efforts of the South Platte River through hands-on field trips.
The Greenway Foundation's Mile High Mile
Standing as the community's curators since 1974, The Greenway Foundation unites seasoned sprinters and pavement-pounding families beneath the same charitable banner during the annual Live-Life-Smiling Mile High Mile race. Funds raised by the race will go to support the Greenway Foundation's SPREE program, which connects thousands of students to the reclamation of the South Platte River through hands-on school trips, weekend events, and summer camps. During the event, participants of all ages launch full throttle into the single-mile scamper, which loops around Sports Authority Field, dashes through the players' tunnel, and finishes with a charge onto the stadium's 50-yard line. After huffing, puffing, and receiving high-fives from impressed tackling dummies, runners bask in postrace accomplishment as prizes acknowledge the morning's swiftest times.
