I don’t often post about local runs, but the price is right and the fun continues long after runners finish. The 811 Run is a 5k run/walk and public awareness event to highlight the safety message – Know What’s Below. Contact 811 before you dig. This certified 5k run is only $8.11 and takes place at Arvada’s Apex Center on Saturday, August 12. Participants receive a FREE running shirt and cool cape.
This family friendly (including your four-legged furry family members) run/walk starts at 8:11 a.m. A post-run Safety Expo includes games, music, prizes, safety demonstration and more. The Arvada Fire Department and local utility companies will be on hand to reinforce the message that before you start digging up your yard, you need to contact 811 so you don’t injure yourself by accidentally cutting any utility lines. You can register here. 13150 W. 72nd Ave., Arvada.
