One breath and one step at a time, on October 14th, 2012 the American Lung Association in Colorado (ALAC) and an anticipated 2500 Coloradans will run/walk through Red Rocks Park to take steps in our fight to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.
While the park has been visited by many, the American Lung Association in Colorado’s Kaiser Permanente Run the ‘Rocks 5K presented by DaVita offers a course that few have had the opportunity to experience as it is the only event of its kind at Red Rocks Park.
Participants as teams or individuals will walk or run through the scenic mountain park on October 14th and finish by climbing the famous amphitheater stairs. During the race, six unique local bands will encourage runners.
At the culmination of the run/walk, participants will enjoy a wide variety of exhibitors and entertainment on the plaza. The 5K run/walk will support the critical programs of the American Lung Association in Colorado. This year’s event anticipates it will raise $200,000 to support programs and services in Colorado.
Race begins in the Upper North Parking Lot
COST: Online registration is closed. You can Register Sunday Oct. 14 starting at 8 a.m. for $40. All participants are encouraged to set a fundraising minimum of $50 in order to earn a signature Kaiser Permanente Run the ‘Rocks 5K performance shirt.

As the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Lung Association in Colorado works day in and day out to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.
Tobacco use kills more people than alcohol, drugs, homicide, suicide, car accidents, fires, and AIDS combined. The air we breathe, indoors and out, has a profound impact on our lung health without many of us even knowing it.
There are more than 100,000 children in Colorado living with asthma and the disease affects more than one in four Colorado families. Breathing is something many don’t think about often but for more than 30 million Americans, every breath is a struggle due to lung disease.
The American Lung Association in Colorado offers a wide variety of programs to address all lung health issues and improve the health of all Coloradans.
Run, walk or crawl. All are welcome at the 6th annual Kaiser Permanente Run the ‘Rocks 5K presented by DaVita. This unique 5K run/walk is the ideal way to spend a Sunday with the family or cool down from the Denver Marathon.
