running the highlands since 2010

Highland Tap & Burger Run Club

Our social run is every Wednesday, year-round, at 6:30 p.m for 4 mile loops through the historic neighborhoods of Lower Downtown and the Highlands.

Post-run, meet new friends over drinks and enjoy free pasta & salad from HTB's celebrated chefs.

Participants are of all levels and various speeds, and newcomers are always welcome!
The run is always free and is hosted by Denver's premiere running coach, Jenni of Mercuria Running.
