Venus de Miles

Each year, Venus de Miles brings more than a thousand women together for sisterhood, community, and a great time, all in support of Greenhouse Scholars as we cultivate extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities.  Multiple course options welcome women of all shapes, sizes, and athletic abilities.  Participants enjoy a supportive, encouraging atmosphere and a finish line festival featuring complimentary lunch, cocktails, spa services, a unique vendor expo, and lots of fun. Philanthropy has surely never felt so good!

Courses

Beautiful in any season, Boulder County is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just 38 miles west of Denver.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
  • Beautiful day for a bike commute. #bicyclecolorado
