March happenings from the Denver Office of Special Events

The Denver Office of Special Events is sharing information about 4 in-person events happening in March (COVID precautions apply!).

Forward this newsletter to a friend so they can subscribe and stay informed about events happening in the Mile High City.

Denver loves the walks, runs, and races that keep our city moving! We were excited when they started to safely return to our parks and streets last fall, and are pleased that they continue to persevere. See below for the runs currently scheduled this month.

Note that every person and organization holding an event-related permit from the City and County of Denver must comply with State of Colorado Public Health Orders and Guidelines in effect at the time of the event. Denver is currently at Level Yellow on the state’s COVID-19 dial which limits outdoor events to 175 people at one time, per activity area.
