Races: Registration opens for 2009 Denver Marathon

DENVER — The Denver Marathon, the largest marathon in Colorado, today announced online registration is open for the 2009 event. The fourth annual Denver Marathon is scheduled for Sunday, October 18 in the Mile High City.

Participants can register online at for one of several Denver Marathon events including the full marathon, half-marathon, and the four-person ING Marathon Relay. In 2009, the field limit will be capped at 12,000 total participants.

“The City of Denver is an outstanding destination to run a marathon, and we are excited to offer runners a flat, scenic course and one of the most entertaining post-race parties in the Rockies,” said Anton Villatoro, General Manager of the Denver Marathon. “The course travels through some of Denver’s beautiful urban parks as well as travels major landmarks such as Coors Field, Union Station and the internationally recognized Denver Art Museum; all set to the backdrop of the breathtaking mountains that give Colorado its gorgeous panoramas.”

Named “Best Marathon” in 2007 by Colorado Runner and one of 10 “Marathons You Should Do in 2008” by Runner’s World, the marathon highlights the cultural diversity of Denver’s communities by incorporating a mix of urban neighborhoods, shopping and restaurant districts, city parks and residential areas in its marathon, half marathon and relay courses. The racecourse will again start in front of the State Capitol, and travel past many of Denver’s major landmarks including Larimer Square, the Pepsi Center and the Denver Public Library. The Denver Marathon course has little to no elevation change and is certified by USA Track & Field as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
