Afterward enjoy live music, food trucks, cocktails, and more at Festival Park in the heart of downtown Castle Rock. Each Friday there will be a different theme for the race to go along with the live music performance that evening. Prizes will be given to best dressed, not who can finish the race the fastest. So come unwind after a long week with a beautiful trail run through Downtown Castle Rock and then stay for the free First Fridays, After 5 Concert Series in Festival Park!
