Denver earned the #5 healthiest city and the #3 fittest city ranking in the 2016 American Fitness Index Data Report, which measures the state of health and fitness in America’s metropolitan areas. In 2017, Denver was named a top 10 running city in the country by Runner’s World. The Mile High City consistently earns high rankings as a top healthy city due, in part, to the city's prime location with easy access to all the recreational fun of the Rockies.
