The weather will be nice and the streets will be full this week because Denver has a lot on the calendar. Out in the sun for a fitness class, under the moon for a pajama party, rowdy and loud during a television premiere, or quiet and relaxing with yoga in the park, Denver is offering a little bit of each for whatever mood might strike you this week.

Where: Coors Field, 2001 Blake St, Denver

Tickets: Available here

The Low Down: GORUCK is more than just a fitness challenge — it uses military tactics, equipment and exercises to push your physique to its limit. In typical GORUCK challenges the participants work as a team to hike while carrying extremely heavy bags of sand or rocks, swim across freezing waters, or sometimes travel with an enormous log across their shoulders, and other similar activities. However, Denver’s GORUCK Scavenger is a little more laid back. The teams will be given a “Hit List” —  a list of places around the city to check out. “It is part team-building, part city tour and all fun.” Drink some beers, make new friends, and get to know Denver in a whole new way.
