Studio PBA had three relay teams (5 runners for each team) that competed in the Colfax Marathon Relay: The PBA Rum Runners, The PBA Revit Crashers and PBA: Slow Down for What. This yearly PBA tradition had our biggest turnout for runners wanting to participate.
Bright and early at 6 am, Sunday morning runners took off from City Park toward Mile High Stadium with all three runners of the first leg finishing with faster times than expected. Through multiple hand-offs throughout the city including Sloan's Lake, Lakewood and Mile High Stadium, all of the runners did an amazing job and once everyone crossed the finish line with all teams finishing ahead of our estimated times. Good work everyone!
For the first time, we choose to run to benefit a nonprofit and we chose Food for Thought (http://foodforthoughtdenver.org/). You can read more about our work with them in previous posts. This was Food for Thought's first year of being involved as a charity partner with the Colfax Marathon. We met the FFT team after the race and were greeted with lots of gratitude and awesome running shirts they gifted us.
We are still waiting on the final results to determine if our teams placed in the top 3 of the Construction/Engineering/Development category. A top 3 finish would mean we would win funds for our charity partner. Regardless of the outcome, we had a great time running and look forward to future races to come!
