About This Activity

Please join us for the Whisper Creek Endless Summer Classic.

We will be offering 2 free kids races with distances of a 100 yard dash and 1-mile run . We will also have a 5K.  (With a recommended $30 donation). All runners receive a race medal, swag bag and t-shirt(adult sizes only).

 We will have water and a sports drink along the 5K course. *Please note that this is not a timed course.

Please enter 1 race per participant to ensure that we have enough medals for all runners.

There will be post race refreshments as well as snacks for runners. We will have many local sponsors supporting the race and offering their services to our community.

Come out to run, meet your neighbors and learn about local businesses.

We would love for you to volunteer and for local businesses to sponsor the race and donate raffle items to get their names out there.

We are accepting non-perishable food items to donate to Arvada Food Bank. For every item donated you will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of the kids races we will choose the winners of some fun items donated by local businesses and neighbors.

Feel free to contact the event organizer with any questions or to donate/sponsor.

The 5K has a recommended donation to the family of a Westminster Police Officer who recently lost his battle with cancer.

Officer Scott Wagner passed away on May 15th after a battle with cancer. He was a five year veteran of the Westminster Police Department. Officer Wagner leaves behind a wife and son and his greatest honor was being "Dad."

Officer Wagner served his country as a combat veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps and as a police officer after his military service. He earned his name on the Marine Corps museum wall for his courage and actions in the battle of Khafji, where he helped save the lives of his Marine reconnaissance team as they were trapped behind enemy lines. Prior to beginning his career at Westminster Police Department, Officer Wagner worked for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, the Library of Congress Police, the United States Park Police, and the Ft. Lupton Police Department. Officer Wagner served the Westminster community honorably and one would be hard-pressed to find a cop with more professionalism and dedication.
