Trouble Deciding What to Wear Sunday? Try Riding in Red…or Running in Green!

Downtown will be all red and green Sunday morning with two major events. One’s green and the other one’s red.

First off, at 10:15 from McCormick’s at 17th and Wazee, is the 25th Anniversary Runnin’ of the Green, billed as the world’s largest 7k road race. Vet/Comedian Kevin Fitzgerald organizes this gathering that will close Wazee Street for the start and, of course, the party. The field will be clad in green as they leave the Fish House taking 17th to Market, then to 20th, then west for the Highlands and back to the beer. “Denver’s Classic Irish Jog” starts with pipes and ends with pints!

Or, be red if you like. The B-cycles are returning to be in place all over town by 5 a.m. Monday morning for another season of urban convenience. How do they get there? A whole bunch of people, dressed in red, gather Sunday morning at B-cycle headquarters, 2737 Larimer Street at 11 for the annual “First Ride”. If you want to skip the run and sign up for the ride, click here. There are lots of bikes to go around. When it’s done, everyone has delivered a bike to one of the stations around town.

This year, B-cycles are available until midnight every day, an hour longer, daylight savings or not.

Ride carefully. Run carefully. And, whatever you’re wearing this weekend, be careful crossing the streets!
