Show your FORTitude by entering inaugural 10K race

Calling all runners, walkers, joggers and folks just looking for a chance to be part of something very new and very cool: There’s still time to sign up for the inaugural FORTitude 10K.

The new race is set for Labor Day (Monday Sept. 4), and offers participants the opportunity to finish on the field at CSU’s new stadium. The race begins on the west side of campus near Moby Arena, winds through the city’s west side and re-enters campus at the historic Oval.

Among the thousands of participants will be alumna Libby James, 80, who holds numerous world and American age-group distance running records. The longtime Fort Collins resident was the first official entrant in the FORTitide 10K.
