What happens in Denver

Setting out from the famous Triangle Building in downtown Denver, our intrepid riders powered out of the city centre past the beautiful 19th century buildings and into the wilderness beyond. Heading north on the South Platte River Trail, the cyclists turned west on the Clear Creek Bike Trail.  Leaving behind the Mile High City, at the 15 mile point our 30-mile riders turned back for the home straight and a photo finish at the Triangle Building.

The 60-mile riders continued west to Golden's Lookout Mountain, enjoying a very gratifying lunch at the summit. They then headed south to Morrison, riding past the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, before turning east on the Bear Creek Trail. Our team of riders finished strong by heading north on the South Platte Trail and crossing the line at the Triangle Building, for a big finish and a few beers to celebrate!

 

5Km run/walk

New this year, Denver colleagues who choose not to cycle had the option of participating in a 5km run or walk, followed by a scenic picnic at Sloan’s Lake. Runners hopped in a carpool and headed out to the lake just before lunch, enjoy the scenic Denver skyline and the peaceful escape from the bustling city as they ran or walked around the Sloan’s Lake path.

Banada Challenge

The Denver challenge was named after Banada School in Uganda. Lessons for Life supports students at Banada school through our partner ACCOD by providing scholastic materials, school support and the provision of teachers lunches.
