This year, the Greek Gallop will continue in its virtual format, allowing participants to walk or run in their neighborhood parks, paths or gyms, sharing their times electronically for rank and prizes.
The Colorado Hellenic Community continues its mission to share Greek Culture with the entire community through its programs and events including The Taste of Greece, the Denver Greek Film Festival 2022, Spring and Fall Lecture Series, and cultural events. Last year, over 80 participants launched the inaugural year of the Greek Gallop ranging in age from 5 to 78. The participation of every registrant expands Hellenic program offerings each year while supporting fitness and good health in our community. Thank You!
To track your walk/run, we recommend some of these apps:
