Broomfield’s first-ever marathon will highlight wildlife, local trail systems and stunning Rocky Mountain views.
Broomfield Rotary Club and A Precious Child will be hosting the city’s inaugural Broomfield Trails Marathon along with a half marathon, 10K and 5K race. The four races will take place Nov. 4.
“Runners start planning out their year and races early on,” Sara Farris, spokeswoman with North Metro Fire Rescue District, said, “so we want to give people ample time to set their schedules and be able to register early, get a spot and set their training schedule.”
Farris, who is helping with marketing for the race, said organizers thought this race would provide another opportunity for long-distance runners. The race begins and ends in Broomfield and travels through portions of Westminster and Boulder County.
“Another unique aspect to the race that really drove the inspiration for this is really highlighting the trail system in Broomfield and the surrounding area,” Farris said. “It sets Broomfield apart and focuses on open and green space. We want to show off those great features and bring people to the area and show what it has to offer.”
