Online Registration Instructions

PLEASE COME TO THE

29th ANNUAL RUNNERS ROOST INVITATIONAL!

One of the largest, and we guarantee, the wettest, cross country meets in Colorado, will be held at the Adams County Fairgrounds. This perennial favorite since 1993 has been created to provide a fun meet in which schools like yours and ours can compete for awards and recognition on a varied and interesting course that includes the usual array of water crossings, dirt, weeds, more water crossings, and ravenous sharks, whales, lobsters, piranhas, and gators. Our emphasis is to give back to the runners, so we will have team plaques, awards for the top finishers, and lots of ribbons, including ribbons for ALL middle school finishers, and food! Once again, we will have a coaches/citizens race (free for coaches), so get yourself in shape and challenge the river and its infamous inflatable critters!

DATE AND LOCATION

Tuesday, September 28. Adams County Fairgrounds. 9755 Henderson Road, Brighton 80602, near US 85 and 124th. Easily accessible from I-76, E-470, and I-25. This wont be the usual Fairgrounds mamby-pamby course there WILL be trails, mud, and water jumps! This course is well-marked, and the meet is well-organized, and tons of FUN!

We plan to also have a pair of small middle school meets at Addenbrooke Park on

Friday, October 1 and 8 like we did in 2020. Please let me know if your team is interested.
