AirLife Memorial 5K Run
By crystalware on May 13, 2014
Saturday morning was our practice race for the Team Challenge Denver crew. A chance for all the racing newbies to practice eating, drinking, and standing in the port-a-pottie line. First rule of racing: nothing new on race day. Second rule of racing: immediately get in the line for the potties and then when you’re finished, get in line again.
It was the Airlife Memorial 5K and 10K held in Hudson Gardens in Littleton in honor of local police, fire and EMS responders that have lost their lives in the line of duty. It is coordinated by Airlife Colorado and Friends of Airlife, a Colorado nonprofit organization grown out of the grassroots effort to build the AIRLIFE Memorial Park. The AIRLIFE Memorial Park was built in 1998 in honor of those who lost their lives in the December 1997 car accident and related AIRLIFE helicopter crash in Littleton.
