While Denver evaluates its current citywide processes and criteria for permitting these popular events in and around the city and our neighborhoods, we will not be accepting applications for any NEW Run/Race/Walk or Bike Rides in 2014. This 2014 cap on new Runs/ Races or Bike Rides is necessary in order for the city to provide the best possible experience for those recurring events we currently permit on an annual basis.

Parks and recreation property and facilities are often the preferred choice of citizens to conduct public assemblies or other activities to exercise their First Amendment Rights.

A public assembly permit is required when such an event is for 50 or more people. This provides adequate notice to the City about logistics and safety issues and plans can be made accordingly for public safety and services. These events typically require coordination with several other agencies in addition to the permit.
