Palmer Lake .5K Fun Race

A .5K race in Palmer Lake raised funds to benefit the Palmer Lake on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

Palmer Lake
Runners stop to "carbo load" with donuts in the 3rd annual Awake Palmer Lake .5K run (yes, .5k). The race was billed as the shortest running event in Colorado. Not only did entrants get a donut for their entrant fee, but a race sticker, a t-shirt, and either a "Colorado Native" beer, root beer or a dog treat, depending on age and species. Proceeds will go towards the continued maintenance of Palmer Lake. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
