**We will be meeting at Dirt Coffee Bar for registration and walking together to the Mary Carter Greenway Trail at 8:30 AM where the race will begin.
Why: To benefit Dirt Coffee, a local non-profit with a mission to train, employ and empower individuals with autism and related neurodiversities while equipping our community to do the same.
Did you know that 90% of individuals with autism are either unemployed or underemployed? Founded with the idea that people with differences deserve better, Dirt’s mobile coffee truck hit the ground in 2013 on a mission to change minds and change lives one cup at a time. In 2018, we opened our first brick and mortar. From the ground up, our shop goes further to cultivate a culture of acceptance, inclusion, and opportunity while empowering others to do the same. Are you in love yet? Dirt breaks the expectation that a good cause comes with a lack of quality. Our baristas are socially conscious and craft a damn good cup of coffee. What’s in the cup is great, but what’s beyond the cup is life changing.
Dirt’s Dig Deep 5k and 1 Mile Run benefits Dirt’s vocational training program, outreach programs and scholarships for individuals in need.
Run, walk or roll with us as we celebrate diversity, inclusion and growth in our community.
8:00 AM: Make your way over to Dirt to register or pick up your race packet and grab a pre-race cup of coffee!
8:30 AM: Racers will walk to the Mary Carter Greenway Trail starting point from Dirt
8:45 AM: Pre-race stretches offered by Special Olympics Colorado
9:00 AM: The starter’s gun will go off for the 1 Mile Run
9:15 AM: The starter’s gun will go off for the 5k Run
We encourage individuals and families of all abilities to come and participate! These courses run along the Mary Carter Greenway Trail, making it a fast and flat course great for families, beginners and experienced racers looking to set a personal record. You can even bring your well-behaved dog who can enjoy tasty treats brought to you by our partners at Zoey’s Place.
Can’t make it to the race, but still want to participate and make a difference in our community? You can join through our virtual race and run at your own pace individually or with friends anywhere in the world! We’ll get your swag mailed to you!
After the race, please plan on joining us at Dirt for an After Party! Our baristas will trade you your race bib for a FREE beverage of your choice including wine and beer! Additionally, we will have a wine tasting brought to you by OneHope Wine, live music, food trucks and a resource fair with a variety of local businesses.
Pre-Packet pickup will be available at Dirt (5767 S. Rapp St. Littleton, CO 80120) the week before the race on June 21st from 10 AM- 2 PM. You will also be able to pick up your bib and t-shirt the morning of the race between 8:00 AM – 8:45 AM.
