The route is pretty much out and back, and you will see that there are many opportunities to double back to shorten your run. The shortest distance would be to walk from Monument to Cinco de Mayo on South Highland, 1.5 miles round trip. If you are compelled, the longest distance will be to add miles in Patterson Park.
Nobody will be left behind! We will aim to be back at Monument by 7:30; no worries if you cannot make the run! You are welcome to meet us at Monument at 7:30 to indulge in some terrific local craft beer.
Cost: No charge, only donations day of the event. For BRRC members, friends of BRRC, and your guests.
We will have festive Cinco de Mayo themed beads and leis, and great Monument draughts.
Wear your Red and Greens and celebrate the 161st anniversary of the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla!
