RunDenver Series FAQ

For That Dam Run, can I change my race distance? Yes, as long as the event isn't sold out, you can upgrade (for registration fee difference) or downgrade (no refunds). You can contact us at and request the change, or you can let us know on event day at registration and we will take care of you.


Are dogs and push strollers allowed?  Yes, we are K9 friendly to all well mannered, controlled and leashed dogs.  Push strollers are more than welcome.  Children pushed in strollers do not need to be registered.  For safety reasons, for those participating in That Dam 13.1, due to the course width, we recommend not running with your dogs or strollers.


What is professional race walking category? Race walking combines the endurance of the long distance runner with the attention to technique of a hurdler or shot putter. Producing less impact, this technically demanding event continues to grow in popularity across the younger and older age groups for its fitness and competitive aspects. Race walking differs from running in that it requires the competitor to maintain contact with the ground at all times and requires the leading leg to be straightened as the foot makes contact with the ground.  The event is judged by USATF officials.


I cannot attend the event, can I get a refund? Unfortunately since our events are supporting great charities, we cannot offer refunds.  If you are unable to attend, you may contact us to see about transferring your registration. 


How do I transfer my registration to another person? If you are unable to run, we do allow you to transfer your registration to another person.  Please be aware, you will need to work out any payment, if applicable, between you and the person taking your place.  To complete a transfer, please contact us.


Do you have advance packet pick-up? For the advance packet pickup, please check out the specific event page for more information.


The shirt size I selected doesn't fit, can I exchange? We realize this happens.  You will be given the shirt size (only those events offering a shirt) you signed up for when you pickup your packet. You may, depending upon availability, exchange your shirt in the post event expo area after you run/walk.


How are series results tabulated? Results for the RunDenver Series standings and awards are tabulated based on your finishing position in each event and are computed by dividing a runner's time into the time of the first place finisher and multiplying by 1000. Each event, the points earned are added up to determine final standings.  Also be aware that for the run/walk events, those that participate in That Dam Run Events your points earned in those events will be used. 


All participants, regardless if they officially sign up for the entire RunDenver Series, will be awarded series points.  Of course, the more events you compete in, the better your standings will be.


When will the series awards be given? Series results will be tabulated and awards given during the award ceremonies at That Dam Run. 


How far is your kids fun run? Our kids fun run is designed for kids generally 8 yrs. & under. The distance is about 200 meters.


I signed up for the series, when do I get my special series jacket? The last day to register for the entire series is just before Rudolph Ramble on December 1st. We will place the order following the event.  We will order only the size you requested.  Therefore we cannot accommodate any size changes, be sure to order carefully. We plan to have your light pullover available to you at one of the events in early February.
