Almost 300 People Tightened Their Laces for 2013 Federal Cup 5k
Over the weekend, the Rocky Mountain Region Denver Federal Center campus hosted the 29th annual Federal Cup 5K road race. Close to 300 runners and walkers made up of federal employees, military personnel, military and federal retirees, contractor personnel (employed by the military or federal agencies), and their families, tightened up their laces and took advantage of the mild Colorado weather. We had many long standing teams participate again this year like the Merry Mountain Ramblers, USGS Minerals and the IRS AM Aces teams, as well as some new teams.
The Federal Cup 5k is the oldest consecutively run fitness event exclusively for federal government employees in the United States. Next year will be the 30th running of the event and Federal Cup 5K Steering Committee is planning an extra special event to celebrate.
Hard Hat Tour Highlights Aggressive Energy Efficient Goals
Recently, the Rocky Mountain Region’s Public Buildings Service partnered with the RMH Group, a local engineering group, to host a hard hat tour for people of the Byron G. Rogers Federal Office Building Modernization in Denver, CO. Through the Denver Architectural Foundation, 42 people joined the tour on May 7th to learn about the $154 million dollar project, located in the heart of Denver, CO. Visitors learned that the primary goals of the design-build project are architectural preservation and demonstration of energy efficient retrofit capabilities. All together, the systems are expected to lower the building energy consumption by up to 65% over its previous rate. The systems are expected to save taxpayers more than $250,000 per year in energy costs while providing superior comfort and a modern workplace for various federal agencies.
