Mother’s Day 2015!

Get ready to spend a healthy day in City Park with Mom. It’s just what Colorado Moms do.

Yay Ovaries!

The 2015 event will be better than ever and even more focused on making the day enjoyable for Mom. We’re bringing brunch to the park after the race. There will also be a child care option for some kid appropriate fitness activities while Mom goes for her 5K PR.

Bring your family and friends to join in the fun at the 6th Annual Mother’s Day 5K. Ladies can run, walk, or stroll. Make it a day of activity the entire family can enjoy and register Dad and the Kids too. Don’t miss the post-race brunch as a great way to treat mom on her special day. The post-race party is filled with snacks, drinks, and some fantastic prizes!

The Mother’s Day 5K is pleased to announce we’re partnering again with the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to eliminating ovarian cancer. Denver’s premier women’s running event is excited to have a portion of your registration fees go directly to HERA and to add a fundraising component to the annual event.

We want you! First-time 5K, elite runners, walkers, and strollers (come on its Mother’s Day) are invited to enjoy Mother’s Day, May 10th with us in City Park.

MD5K rocks!

Mother’s Day 2014, one to remember!

Thank you all for a wonderful day. Colorado is the toughest state in the nation and we proved it by making a fabulous day out of a freak spring snow storm! We here at the MD5K can all but guarantee you better weather next year, but not a better race. 2014 was a great event and we are eager to share 2015 with you and a whole lot of sunshine!
