It’s difficult to keep training through Colorado’s harsh winters, but the Winter Distance Series helps by motivating thousands of runners to keep moving. The series offers three events in Littleton. The first race is the Santa Stampede 5K/10K in December, followed by the Frosty’s Frozen 5 and 10 Miler in January, and then the Snowman Stampede 5K, 10K and Half Marathon in February. Each race offers a party-like atmosphere with flat and fast courses along the banks of the scenic South Platte River. Run a great race, and then earn your bling with a new race medal! Register for the whole series, or just one or two races.

All races are staged from Hudson Gardens in Littleton, CO. Hudson Gardens is located at 6115 S Santa Fe Dr. For a detailed map, please click here.
