Why Contribute?

Proceeds from our annual run assist in maintaining “The Jeremy Bitner Fallen Officer Fund,” a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which offers financial assistance to the next of kin of any fallen officer acting in the line of duty in the State of Colorado. All proceeds raised stay in Colorado and benefit those in our community who are affected by these tragic and untimely losses.

Since 2013, the fund has supported the families of these fallen officers:

  • Sgt. Baldwin – Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office
  • Sgt. Renfro – Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office
  • Trooper Taylor Thyfault – Colorado State Patrol
  • Officer Kevin Denner – Littleton Police Department
  • Officer Garrett Swasey – UCCS Police Department
  • Trooper Jaimie Jursevics – Colorado State Patrol
  • Deputy Derek Geer – Mesa County Sheriff’s Office
  • Deputy Nate Carrigan – Park County Sheriff’s Office
  • Deputy Travis Russell – Las Animas County Sheriff’s Office
  • Trooper Cody Donahue – Colorado State Patrol
  • Deputy Zackari Parrish – Douglas County Sheriff’s Office
  • Deputy Heath Gumm – Adams County Sheriff’s Office
  • Deputy Micah Flick – El Paso County Sheriff’s Office
  • Sgt. Matthew Moreno – Las Animas County Sheriff’s Office
  • Corporal Dan Groves – Colorado State Patrol
  • Trooper William Moden – Colorado State Patrol
  • Sgt. Joshua Voth – Colorado Department of Corrections
  • Officer Eric Talley – Boulder Police Department

Additionally, the fund provides assistance annually to Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and Judi’s House – organizations that provide bereavement programs for the families of fallen officers.

Register Now
Race day registration will be open from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. While we highly recommend that you pre-register for our event, you will have the option of registering the day of the race. Race day registration will close promptly at 7:30 a.m. in order to allow for time to get race information to the timing company.
Due to COVID-19, we will only have one water station available for this event. The water station will be at the mile one marker (5k) and mile 5 (10k). This course is an out and back, so you those running or walking will pass this water station twice. We encourage you to bring your own water to this race in the event you require additional hydration beyond the water stations provided.
