Mechelen Pavilion @ Memorial Park
8001 West 59th Ave, Arvada, CO 80004
Starting at Memorial Park in Arvada, CO and winding through the beautiful Ralston Creek Trail, this is a scenic race! As you run, all of your fans will be able to see you from the start line, then walk less than 1/3 of a mile to see you at two different points before cheering on your finish. This is a very spectator friendly venue!
All 3W Events maintain a cup-free finish area. Bring your own water bottle. At the finish line, there will be no cups. You can leave your water bottle at the finish/start area, or in your car, as parking is very close to the finish line.
There is no water station for this 5k.
We will run rain or shine, or snow. Dress appropriately. If significant snow falls the night before the event, it is likely that the trail portions of the course will be snow covered. We use the trails in an "as is" condition. Plan accordingly and run accordingly. Parking is VERY close to the finish/start area, so keeping a fresh, dry pair of socks and shoes in your car for after the race is a GREAT idea!
