Run The Rockies.

Run The Rockies.

Who wants to run a “mile high” marathon (or half marathon) in the “Mile High City”?


That’s right, my scheduling conflict is your benefit. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to run the REVEL Rockies Marathon/Half Marathon on August 17th in Denver, Colorado.

So I want you to run it in my place.

The great people at the REVEL Race Series are allowing me to give my entry to the REVEL Rockies race to one lucky Tripping The Kenyans reader.

And this is one cool race.

Starting at an altitude over 10,000 feet for the marathon (7,400 feet for the half marathon), you make your way down the Colorado Rocky Mountains with beautiful vistas of nature and glimpses of Denver in the distance.

This incredibly fast downhill race gives you a great opportunity to achieve a PR. And since it’s a USATF certified course, you can also use it as a Boston qualifier.

In addition to a wonderfully scenic course, REVEL Rockies runners get the following:

  • Cool gender-specific tech T-shirts
  • Awesome finisher’s medal
  • Great additional race swag
  • Free race photos and personalized video
  • Finish line festivities

You can check out more about the race by clicking on the image below:

Sounds like a fun time, right?

Even better when it’s FREE.

  • The prize is one entry (Marathon or Half Marathon, your choice) into the REVEL Rockies race on August 17, 2014.
  • Transportation/lodging is NOT included, but you can find hotel listings on the REVEL Rockies website.

That’s it.

Good luck to everyone who enters… and Run on!
