Monday 6pm Run in Washington Park

Washington Park Mount Vernon Garden

Achilles Colorado welcomes athletes of all abilities. We match volunteers with athletes with disabilities, running, walking or rolling. You can choose to walk or run various distances around Washington Park. Our most popular option is to complete the 2.5 mile loop around the park 1 or 2 times, but there are many options, including the 2-mile road within the park.

For the time being, while the rec center is closed and access to the park is limited, we are meeting in a parking lot on the south side of the park. It's by the Martha Washington/Mt. Vernon Gardens. To get there on foot or bike from Downing, turn east on Tennessee. You can drive into the park from Franklin: turn west on Mississippi into the park. You don't have to drive far before you are in the parking lot.

Until conditions change, we recommend getting that set up ahead of time. In the past we were lucky to have a pool of guides, but right now things are tighter. If you need help connecting with a guide, contact Pam at [masked].

We will ask everyone to wear a mask and follow social distance guidelines before and after we run.

We pair runners up in small groups according to their pace. Runners, walkers, and pushrim athletes of all levels attend. You can choose to guide one of our athletes or just run along with your group.

6 pm Belleview Elementary School and Cherry Creek State Park

Campus Middle School

We will leave the parking lot at 6PM, so please be there before 6. If you are running late or can't find us, leave a comment or send a DM.

Our average distance is about 4.5 miles, but we might do more or less depending on how the group is feeling. People usually run at a variety of paces: 8 min/mile to 13 min/mile. But, we are primarily a social run! Even if you don't typically run that far or that fast, we are happy to have you! We'll always have someone wait or circle back if you happen to fall behind.

We are a running and walking group. Everyone needs a way to get over hump day right!? This run club is for all levels of runners; whether you're training for a race, pushing a stroller, walking a dog or just looking to meet people. This group is a great way to be social, run, and meet new running partners! Come join us and be part of the group! This group is meant to be fun and a great way to meet new people with common interests.

Feel free to wear headphones, but we are usually talking and socializing. During the winter, it will be dark, so please bring a headlamp if you have one. We often have extras, though.

We look forward to seeing you!
