Broncos Are Coming!
May 6, 2017, 10:00 AM
Organizers expect nearly 1,000 runners!
What to expect
  • The run begins and ends at the High School. Expect increased traffic in that area when registration begins at 7:30 AM
  • Several roads will be closed for the run from approximately 9:30 to Noon. See the attached map.
How can my business or community organization participate?
  • Outfit a team with your t-shirts for the run. Register on the website.
  • Outfit volunteers with your t-shirts for a water station or course marshals. See website.
  • Cheer runners along the run route! (again t-shirts, you get the idea)
  • Have an event at your business to bring visitors inside, such as a sidewalk sale or specials for the day.
  • Decorate in orange and blue! Dig out your Broncos gear for the day!
  • Be careful using the Bronco name and/or logo in advertising. While they are very nice people they do frown on commercial use of the name and logo. Ads for "Race Day" specials and events are perfect.
  • Have FUN!
