Colfax Marathon

I wasn’t really planning on shooting the beginning of the Marathon, but since I woke up early and it was only 1 block away…

Later, I ambled down to 17th and Gaylord where a group of enthusiastic supporters stood and cheered as the runners turned north. I was told that the front runner was way out in the lead and had passed there about an hour and a half earlier. Cheers to all who participated.


Update: From 9news.com:
