4th of July 5k

Grimm Brothers will be hosting the Loveland Liberty 5K on the 4th of July. The race starts at 8 a.m. at the taproom and there will be post race festivities to celebrate Independence Day. (See below for more info)

Love, liberty, and the pursuit of the finish line: We hold these truths to be self-evident this 4th of July at the Loveland Liberty 5K Benefit Run/Walk. Lace up your Independence Day sneakers and hit the pavement for this race — which benefits Life for the Innocent — in the shadow of purple mountain majesties. You’ll start at 8 a.m. at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse on Denver Ave. and wind through five kilometers worth (about three miles in American measurements) of town, crossing the finish line back where you began. Then, kick back a refreshing cold one — named after your favorite fairy tales — from the local suds factory. The post-race festivities include a kids’ race, awards, door prizes, music, and, of course, more beer. Drink in the freedom and then head to Lake Loveland for the Sweetheart City’s famous fireworks show.

    I'm on front of strive, parking lot filling up fast!

    Yeah, last I checked their fb page they were pushing 700 registered runners and I'm not sure what parking will be accessible. I should be in front of the gym by 7:30am. If the area is roped off or something, I will post another location here. Feel free to text that number above.
    Emily, no problem...I look forward to meeting you.

    It's a small area, and a lot more people registered than was expected. So, I would allow yourself ample time to find parking and to get your registration packet/info. Race starts at 8 and registration opens at 7. Hope that helps.

    So the meetup will officially be at that gym then? Is there ample parking nearby or should we allow ample time to park potentially blocks away and walk over? Any ideas on how early we need to expect to be out there in order to park and get to the meetup location on time? Thks! :-)

    There is an estimated 600 people for this race. Could be a bit tricky meeting up with everyone. Unfortunately, my respitatory illness is still a factor. I am going to wait and see how I feel in the morning, but is anyone able to be volunteer "event host" for me in case the worst happens and I can't make it tomorrow??

    There is a new gym, Strive Functional Fitness, right at the entrance. Maybe meet in front? My number is[masked]

    This will be my first meetup with y'all, how do I find you in the morning!?? I'm hoping there's others that just want to walk vs run...?

    For anyone who has not registerred yet, here is the website to do so. http://www.active.com/page/confirmation.htm?event_id=2028047&order_id=64274571-061812213700&CFID=64837452&CFTOKEN=38589241 . Cost is $25 (I think, I registered awhle back). Also, I have had a terrible cold/cough last few days and smoke isn't making it any better. I can still be there, but I may not be able to run/walk it depending on how I heal up. Hope to see you all there.
