Join us for a Virtual Run this year as we continue to celebrate our nation’s heroes!

Recognized as Denver’s official run for Veterans, this is a memorial 5K & 10K virtual run, open to everyone. ALL proceeds of your registration (and donations!) goes directly to helping Colorado Veterans. The Denver Veterans Day Run is hosted by Colorado Veterans Project, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that hosts special events in order to raise awareness and funds for local Veteran organizations. Our mission is to enhance pride and patriotism in all Coloradans by building a stronger, more supportive community around our Veterans.

  • Create Your Own 5K/10K Route.
    This is a virtual run, so the route is completely up to you! Run your 5K, 10K, or 30K in your neighborhood, a nearby park, a mountain trail, a treadmill at the gym… the possibilities are endless! You can use an app like Map My Run to plan your route, discover new trails and record your run.

  • Record Your Time Through RunSignUp.
    Record your finish time online through RunSignUp.com. Regardless of finish time, we’ll mail your Finisher’s medal, Race T-shirt, and commemorative race bib directly to the address you registered with.

  • Compete on the Virtual Leaderboard.
    We encourage everyone to join in this friendly competition! Check the Virtual Leaderboard to see the top finishers. Sort by distance, gender, age, etc..
