The Broomfield Rotary Club has supported many charities in Colorado for over 50 years. In the past 10 years alone, Broomfield Rotary has raised and donated more than $1 million for charitable causes. Broomfield Rotary has supported the work of A Precious Child, an organization providing opportunities and resources to children in need to empower them to achieve their full potential. Since its founding in 2008, A Precious Child has served more than 232,000 children in need in Colorado.
The Broomfield Trails Marathon was established to bring together these two impactful organizations while further engaging both the local and broader communities and bringing a signature race series to the Broomfield area. One hundred percent of proceeds from the Broomfield Trails Marathon will go to charitable endeavors: Fifty percent to support A Precious Child’s mission and fifty percent to Broomfield Rotary to distribute to other causes through the Broomfield Rotary Charitable Foundation.
The Broomfield Trails Marathon will soon become the largest running event in the North Metro area of Denver. Event day will include a Full and Half Marathon, a 10K and a 5K. The races are designed to attract runners and walkers of all skill levels and ages.
The venue is located in the heart of Broomfield at the Broomfield Community Center. The area abuts the Mamie Eisenhower Library, the Civic Center and the North Metro Fire Admin Offices which means easy access and abundant parking. The view of the mountains from this location is truly spectacular.
There will be an Expo Area where our Sponsors and Vendors will have booths set up for attendees to browse and shop. There will be food and beverages stands throughout the area as well.
First and foremost, this is an event designed for the entire family to attend, participate and enjoy. There will be medals for the top finishers and ribbons for all participants along with other sign-up prizes. But it is also designed to appeal to the more serious runners, as there will be cash prizes available for the Full and Half Marathons.
