Introducing the Military Challenge in Denver!


Join the Military Challenge and race against fellow members of the armed services at the 2017 Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Half Marathon and 10K!

What is the Military Challenge?

It is a free race-within-a-race that allows you to compete against fellow members of the armed services! Athletes competing in the Military Challenge must be either active duty or a veteran of the United States Armed Forces. If eligible, your times will be ranked against both your military division and those in the Challenge, in addition, of course, to the overall Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver race field.

What Do I Win?

First, second and third place awards will be given to the overall top male and female finishers participating in the Half Marathon and 10K Military Challenge.

In addition, we’ll recognize the top 3 men and women from each service branch, which comes with serious bragging rights. Final results will be posted online.

All participants will receive an exclusive Vanity Bib and experience a dedicated Military Mile honoring serviced members as you make your way through the streets of Denver!
