Run Along the Rockies with us this year!

Welcome to the Inaugural Run Along the Rockies Virtual 5k race, supporting the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps, along with Ascend Performing Arts. Registration is open from June 1 until July 12, 2020, coinciding with the annual Drums Along the Rockies, Colorado’s premier marching music event. The cost of this inaugural race is $35.


A virtual race is a race that can be run, walked, or marched from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and your shirt and medal will be shipped directly to you. 


Click on the BKMarketplace link here and follow the instructions. Register by June 27, 2020 to receive your swag in time to race on July 12. All race entries submitted by June 27 will arrive by July 12, 2020, subject to USPS shipping times. Entries received after June 27 will ship within 7-14 days. 


Once you have signed up for a race, decide on the course you want to do, including on the treadmill. Although we are not collecting race times, you can time yourself. You can even get your friends and/or your kids to race with you, too! Once you are registered you can complete your Run Along the Rockies virtual 5K at any time.


You do not need to submit your results for the 2020 Race Along the Rockies. Just proudly wear your shirt, knowing you have supported a great cause.


Take Photos With Your Medal and Share Your Race With Us! We would love to hear about your race. Post a photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #BK5K and tag the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps or Drums Along the Rockies!


Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund for this event.
