A Fun And Healthy Way to Support Our Young Coyotes!

Looking for a fun run for the entire family? Don’t miss the 5th annual Coyote 5K Classic and 1 mile fun run in Golden on Sunday, September 21st at 8:30 am. You can expect challenging hills and stunning views while you enjoy this one of a kind community event.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, including the city of Golden, this is one of the most affordable 5k events in the area. There will be fun activities, food/drinks, music and a silent auction happening during and following the race. All kids that finish the 5k or 1 mile receive a medal. Also, everyone receives a great commemorative t-shirt from the race. The top three male and female runners receive a free pair of running shoes from Vital Outdoors and there are great age group prizes as well.

Even non-runners will want to load up on carbs the night before at Lil’ Ricci’s!  They’re offering an all you can eat spaghetti dinner for $6 (drinks not included, full menu available) from 4:00 – 9:00 on Saturday Sept. 20th.  20% of the proceeds go to Shelton!

We hope to see you there to support this family friendly community event in Golden. Prices are $10 for the 1 mile, $15 for the 5k (under 18) and $20 for adults. For all the details regarding how to register and more information, please go to the website at

Note:  the Coyote 5K Classic is not to be confused with the Golden Gallop.  That race benefits the Golden Schools Foundation, and it takes place on the 28th of September.  The Coyote Classic is a week earlier.  Why not plan to do both?
