The weather was perfect — cool and only a little wet — for the Zodiac Dash, and then cleared up by afternoon for the festival. (Photo by Claudia Hernandez-Ponce — click photo to enlarge)
Congratulations to Dylan Thompson and Megan McArthur, who are both 16 years old, for winning first place in the Zodiac Dash 3.5K Fun Run presented by Bellco during the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival! The morning was cool — perfect running temperature — and participants enjoyed the run itself, with performances by Thai Harmony, Mudra Dance Studio, Wu Lan Lion Dance, and Halau Kalama along the course. Runners also got to tie wishes onto a Japanese-style Wishing Tree when they crossed the finish line.
Some intrepid runners donned masks, headgear and even costumes to represent their Chinese Zodiac Sign (more or less!), and added a true spirit of fun to the run!
