The 10th Annual Run for the Ring 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run

August 3

Starting and finishing at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes (BDC), race entry for the 5K and the Kids Zone/Fun Run opens May 16, 2024, with an early bird discount through June 28.

Regular registration runs from June 29 to July 30, and “day-of” registration goes from July 31 to race day, August 3. Last year, we had over 430 runners, walkers, and kids, and this year’s race is expected to be even bigger as we celebrate 10 years of running for the brass ring – the cure for diabetes.

All proceeds from the event support the efforts and programs of The Guild of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation (CDF), whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of BDC patients living with type 1 diabetes and their families through education, support, advocacy, and research.

On race day, registration begins at 7:00 a.m. at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus at 1775 Aurora Court, Aurora, Colorado, 80045. The 5K Run/Walk is a professionally timed race on a USATF-certified course that starts at 8:00 a.m. and culminates with a foam party at the finish line.

Kids between the ages of two and ten can also participate in the Kids Fun Run, zooming around the Kids Zone while loved ones cheer, high-five, and spray them with squirt guns. Children can play in bounce houses, mazes, and other fun outdoor activities within the Kids Zone starting at 8:00 a.m. The Kids Fun Run starts immediately after the 5K Awards Ceremony.

Registration includes breakfast bites, a timing chip (5K only), a race bib, entrance to the Exhibitor Expo, and a Run for the Ring performance t-shirt. Participants must register by July 13 to guarantee a t-shirt.
