Golden Parks and Recreation to Host First Annual Recreate 5K

Registration is open to join the Golden Parks and Recreation Department on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2008, for the First Annual Recreate 5K. Recreate 5K is self-funded community event promoting health and wellness and engaging all levels of racers from elite runners and joggers to families with strollers and dogs.

The scenic Recreate 5K course begins at Lions Park in front of the Golden Community Center (GCC), stretches along Clear Creek into Jefferson County Open Space and loops back to finish were it began. The course is an unofficial course; however times will be recorded for the elite runner group.
