The Original Great Candy 5K Run/Walk

1700 E Louisiana Ave, Denver, CO 80210, USA




What is sweeter than candy? The Great Candy Run of course!  And who couldn't use a little more sweetness this year?!

Come out, or stay in, either way, we hope you'll join us for another GREAT CANDY RUN!  Others have tried to replicate it, but none are as sweet as this family friendly event.  So whether you're 9 or 99, across the globe or right here in Denver - it's time to get your SWEET ON!

The in-person event will be produced with the utmost care and precaution to minimize contact points and keep everyone safe and healthy.  The event will be capped to allow for proper social distancing.
