On Sunday, October 7th Goldens biggest annual race will explode into galloping motion for the seventh year running. Starting for the first time beneath the Citys famous Welcome arch, right in the center of historic downtown Golden, and finishing in leafy Parfet Park besides gushing Clear Creek, the Golden Gallop will lead its runners on a brand-new loop, covering a unique new distance, 5.280 miles at mile high altitude.
Elite runners will be racing for prize money, brave first-timers will be competing for more personal rewards, school kids will be challenging their friends, neighbor will be running in friendship with neighbor, and by taking part all will be contributing to the race beneficiary, the Golden Schools Foundation.
The 2012 Golden Gallop is sure to be a one-of-a-kind race in a one-of-a-kind town. Will you be there, running where the west runs?
