Crimson Classic Fun Run and Walk


The University of Denver's Seventh Annual Crimson Classic is a fun 5k Run/Walk held during Homecoming. The focus of the Crimson Classic is to celebrate wellbeing and bring together our community. 

In addition to the race, please join us for a full day of wellbeing activities and lawn games on Carnegie Green. We encourage departments or groups to show your team spirit by dressing up in your favorite DU gear or themed outfits!

This is a free event! The race beings at 3pm on Carnegie Green. All participants will receive a 7th Annual Crimson Classic t-shirt. Registration link below. For those pre-registered, t-shirts will be available for pick-up 2 days in advance, please keep an eye out for pick-up times/locations.

DU Faculty and Staff that participate in the Wellmetrics Portal will receive 500 points for completing the run/walk or for volunteering. You will be able to award your own points this year on the portal.
