The Superior Stocking Run is a USATF certified 5K road course that starts and finishes at Purple Park in the town of Superior. Runners depart the start line on Rock Creek Parkway and enjoy a fast gradual downhill opening mile. The course then winds through Rock Creek neighborhoods before returning to Rock Creek Parkway for the final half mile. The finish line will be on Rock Creek Parkway, which is closed to traffic for the race! Click Here for a Course Map.

PACKET PICK-UP: Racer bib numbers, goody-stockings, and shirts will be available on race morning beginning at 7:30am in Purple Park. There will also be an early packet pick-up at Runners Roost in Louisville - Date TBD. Runners Roost is located at 459 S. McCaslin Blvd. Louisville, CO 80027.
If you pick up your packet in Louisville, you may be one of the three lucky runners who gets COAL in their stocking. You can trade your coal for a new stocking, AND a gift certificate to Runners Roost!!!
Did you know that socks are the number one clothing need of the homeless, as they wear out faster than any other article of clothing, and are rarely donated? To address this issue, a campaign to raise awareness and collect socks was started in Denver in 2011 and has now spread to throughout the United States.
The Town of Superior strongly supports this effort and we are helping by collecting socks at the Superior Stocking Run! Please consider donating a new pair socks for the homeless at early packet pickup or on race day, and you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Runners Roost! We will be giving two gift certificates to sock donors by random drawing immediately following the race. You do not need to be present to win.
DIRECTIONS: The race will start and finish at Purple Park in Superior, Colorado. Superior is located off at the Mcaslin exit off Highway 36 between Denver and Boulder. From Highway 36, head south on Mcaslin approximately 1 mile.
PARKING: There will be no parking on neighborhood streets or on Pitkin. The residents of Superior were kind enough to let us use their neighborhood for the race. Please do not park on their streets. There is plenty of parking available in the designated lots. The few designated parking spaces on Pitkin are reserved for race staff, volunteers, vendors, and our ambulance.
Athletes can park in the Key Equipment Financing office complex at 1000 S. Mcaslin in Superior. This is on the west side of Mcaslin at the top of the hill. Parking signs will direct you into the lot. From there, it's just a short 2 minute walk to the start line! To reach the start line, you will cross McCaslin, then follow Rock Creek Parkway east & south to Pitkin.
Superior Residents may find that it is easier to park at the North Superior Pool and Tennis Complex at the corner of Rock Creek Parkway and Indiana. The address is 1650 Indiana St. in Superior. From there, it's just a short 2 minute walk to the start line! To reach the start line, you will follow Rock Creek Parkway north to Pitkin.
We will have a bag check area in the registration zone. Just fill out a tag, and you can leave a bag of clothes, etc there for after the race. This will save you a trip or two back to your car!
We'll have plenty of good things to eat and drink in the finish line area, including hot cocoa, ramen noodle cups, and lots of other munchies!!! Hopefully you'll also be one of the lucky participants who walks away with some sponsor schwag in our post race drawing. We've got gift certificates and gear from lots of awesome race sponsors!!!
Free Holiday Face Painting will be offered during packet pickup and after the race by Emiko!!!
