Easter is a fun time for kids. Not only do they enjoy painting eggs in bright colors, they also enjoy the thrill of the hunt – hunting eggs, that is. In fact, Easter just might be the holiday where children get the most exercise. During Thanksgiving, everyone is too busy eating. At Christmas, everyone is too concentrated on opening presents. Easter is the holiday when people of all ages can race around the yard in search of the egg that holds the grand prize! If you’re looking for a fun event to attend, check out the Hoppin’ Half!
About The Event
The Hoppin’ Half will be held at Central Park on Saturday, April 20 from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. You’ll find the park located at 880 Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, Denver, CO 80238. If you’d like to pick up an early packet for the event, stop by Runners Roost Stapleton on Thursday, April 18 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. 2019 marks the 5th year for the Hoppin’ Half event. There are a variety of races for everyone:
- 1 Mile
- Half Marathon
- Kid’s Cottontail Fun Run
We know you might want to bring the little ones and the family pet along – and that’s okay! For pets, the following rules must be followed:
- All pets must be leashed.
- Pet-owners must clean up after the pet.
- All pets must be comfortable in big crowds.
For the little ones to attend, a stroller will be necessary. However, for some of the longer runs, there will be dirt trails and inclines that might prove difficult. In order for you to get a better idea of the layout of each run, we’ve broken down the trail into a percentage of concrete and dirt. Look below:
- 1 Mile: 100% concrete trail
- 5K: 100% concrete trail
- 10K: 75% concrete trail, 25% dirt trail
- 10 Mile: 55% concrete trail, 45% dirt trail
- Half Marathon: 65% concrete trail, 35% dirt trail
Don’t miss out on this fun event for the entire family!
