Rambling Rose 5K run/walk
The 5K course is a fast 5 kilometer, flat course. Portions of the course are on hard-packed earth and gravel surfaces. (Please note - portions of the course are open to traffic.) Beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains greet runners as they near the finish area.
After the race, stay for the Post-Race Fireman's Pancake Breakfast and enjoy entertainment, vendors, and activities during Beef and Bean Day in the heart of Milliken.
The Rambling Rose 5K was created in loving memory of Annette Rose P. and Nevaeh Rose E. Annette was an avid runner and completed countless races of all distances, including multiple marathons and half marathons. Nevaeh completed her first race while in utero, crossing the finish line mere inches ahead of her mother. She was too beautiful for earth.
