“From Boulder to Alamosa and Denver to Gunnison, Colorado abounds with people who have made monumental contributions to the sport of distance running at the recreational, national and international levels.
“They have made this state an international running mecca, the envy of runners across the rest of the country, a home for multiple Olympic medalists, world champions and former world- record holders. They have helped make Denver-Boulder No. 1 in the U.S. for runners per capita and the Bolder Boulder one of the world’s largest road races.
“So it’s about time somebody created a Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Thanks to the organizers of the Colorado Colfax Marathon, the long-overdue Hall becomes a reality May 18.”
