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 also shorter options available.
We meet every Monday throughout the year and Winter. We NEVER cancel a run because of rain, snow or cold!
We do our best to pair Achilles Athletes with able-bodied guides who walk or run at a similar pace. Runners of all levels attend; ranging from 7 minutes per mile, to 12 minutes per mile and walkers. The most important thing is just to get out there and get moving, regardless of how fast or how far you go!
Run meeting location: Washington Park Recreation Center. 701 S. Franklin St. Denver CO 80209. (There is a parking lot next to the Recreation Center)
Look forward to seeing you Monday!
