The Stocking Run
Sunday December 3, 2023
The Superior Stocking Run starts and finishes at Purple Park in the town of Superior. In 2023, we will be using a slightly different course (as we did in 2022) to avoid areas still being rebuilt following the devastating Marshall fire. Runners depart the start line in Purple Park and enjoy a fast gradual downhill opening mile. The course then winds through Rock Creek neighborhoods on road and bike path before returning to the finish line in Purple Park.Click Here for a Course Map.
Series Finisher award to all runners who finish each of the three series races!!!
The Superior Stocking Run is the first event in the Racing Underground Winter Running Series. The Series also includes the Yeti Chase 5k & 10k in January, and the Ralston Creek Half Marathon & 5k in February. A 5k-5k-5k series and a 5k-10k-half marathon series are offered.

Your entry fee includes entry into the race, a Stocking Run ornament, a Stocking Run technical running shirt in gender-specific adult sizes, and 50/50 short sleeve youth sizes, fun music, post race goodies including Jill's famous home baked banana chocolate chip bread, and if you are one of the speedy guys or gals up front you may take home a bit of cash!!!

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, Jill's famous home-baked banana chocolate chip bread, and lots of other goodies!!!
