Information provided by City of Castle Pines

The 2nd annual “Run Wild” race and Family Color Run will be held in the City of Castle Pines on Sunday, September 15 starting at 8:30 a.m.

“Run Wild” offers a multitude of options for participants of all skill levels and ages with a 4-mile, 9-mile and a 1k Family Color Run. The Family Color Run, a first-of-its-kind event for the Castle Pines community last year, invites participants wearing plain white t-shirts to run a course that includes an area where volunteers “color” the runners, splattering them with multi-color powder.

The 4-mile and 9-mile races begin and end in Elk Ridge Park, located on Mira Vista Lane near Lagae Road. Both race routes offer the opportunity for participants to challenge themselves while enjoying the beautiful, natural surroundings in the City of Castle Pines during late summer.

The 1k Family Color Run will be held in Elk Ridge Park at the conclusion of the other events, and provides an opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy a unique experience that is focused less on speed and more on fun with friends and family.

“We were happy to see the enthusiasm and excitement of the participants during the inaugural event in 2012 and are pleased to announce plans for the second annual “Run Wild” event this year, said Jeffrey Huff, Mayor of the City of Castle Pines. “The event will be a lot of fun for our community and we hope it will become a time-honored tradition in the years to come.”
