“Howdy Folks!

Welcome to Golden, where the west RUNS!” 

On Sunday, September 24, 2017 Golden’s biggest annual race will take place for the 12th year running! Starting again beneath the City’s famous ‘Welcome’ arch, right in the center of historic downtown Golden, and finishing in Parfet Park beside gushing Clear Creek, the Golden Gallop will lead its runners on 5k and 10k loops followed by the Kid’s Fun Run.

We are offering $150 first place; $100 second place; $50 for third place. These amounts will be for both the male and female at each level for both the 10K and the 5K (total of 12 cash awards).  In addition, anyone who sets a new course record will receive a $100 bonus.

The 2017 Golden Gallop is sure to be a one-of-a-kind race in a one-of-a-kind town. Be there, running where the west runs!
