This year, as Mile High United Way celebrates its 135th anniversary, the organization is encouraging trotters to create a personal fundraising page and set a campaign goal of $1,350 to support Mile High United Way’s mission. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers.

As runners cross the finish line, they will enter the Finish Village, which features the Great Divide Beer Garden, live entertainment, vendor booths, family activities and Turkey Trot mascot Gobbles.
