The Lakewood Police Department is looking for volunteers to assist with the upcoming Colfax Marathon, on Sunday, May 18.
Around 100 volunteers are needed 6:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to assist with monitoring traffic at intersections along the marathon route.
Competitors will begin the marathon on the east side of Denver City Park Lake. The route will take the runners westbound along Colfax through Lakewood to the Glens, out to Garrison and then eastbound on Colfax to the starting point.
Those who volunteer will assist with traffic control to insure the runners have a safe course to follow. This event has always proved to be a fun and exciting opportunity to witness the dedication and share the enjoyment these competitors experience.
Each volunteer will receive a Colfax Marathon T-shirt. For more information, call 303-987-7105 or e-mail
