Run for DSST!

Colfax Marathon is Denver’s largest running weekend! Distances are approachable for all levels of runners and walkers. Colfax course distances include the Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, Urban 10 Miler, and a 5K.

For the first time ever, DSST is participating in the marathon! This year, runners can choose to run for DSST as your designated nonprofit. Signing up to run with DSST does not require you to do anything extra. We appreciate any and all support you may be able to give and we look forward to encouraging you on your Colfax journey!




You can also register through the Colfax marathon page and choose us as your chosen charity by following these steps:

  • Visit the marathon registration page for the race you want to enter

  • Look under “Additional Questions”

  • Select “Yes” for the question “Are you considering raising funds or awareness for a charity?”

  • A dropdown menu will appear for you to select DSST Public Schools as your nonprofit partner.
