Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District briefs


Membership sale

On Aug. 24, Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District authorized a 25% discount on all memberships for a Black Friday deal Nov. 25- 30. The recreation center is advertising this deal as a great way to take care of holiday gifts. The center also is having a Labor Day sale on memberships, where the memberships will be 15% off Sept. 1-15. More information can be found on the rec center’s website

Slacker Half Marathon

Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District is in the process of acquiring the Slacker Half Marathon. 

The race, which has been owned by the county, is a 501(c)3 benefiting the Youth Activities Scholarship Fund, Clear Creek/Gilpin Animal Shelter-Spay/Neuter Program, and Mount Evans Home Health and Hospice. The race was started 20 years ago by county employee Beth Luther. 

In the Aug. 24 meeting, the board was hopeful that the race, originally created to offset some of the county’s subsidies, could help offset costs in the recreation district. 

Skate Board 

The CCMRD board authorized the Skate Board to open a bank account for the skate park project. This comes after a GoFundMe for the park has earned over $1,000. City Council recently unanimously approved to cover the cost of the proposal for the skate park.
