Glenwood Canyon Shuffle Race for Literacy

Run to help others read.  Runners and walkers are invited to shuffle the pages, the deck, and their legs for literacy Saturday, October 2, at the Glenwood Canyon Shuffle Race for Literacy. Because of the fires and mudslides in the Glenwood Canyon, this year the Glenwood Canyon Shuffle Race for Literacy course has been modified. The altered course will start and finish at the No Name rest area, exit 119. Instead of a 5K and half-marathon run, we will have a 5-mile run which will head west toward Glenwood Springs.

The race starts at 9:00 a.m. The race entry fee is $30 and includes one way-cool, long-sleeve tee-shirt per person. All tee shirts are designed by a local artist. One thing we are not changing is the poker hand! We’re shuffling the deck for literacy! Each racer gets five playing cards with a $100 reward for the best poker hand!
