Denver's Ida Whitelow has fun during a Zumba workout.
Fitness on the Rocks draws a crowd

Up and down. Up and down. Up and down.

Seven up-and-downs made 1 mile for those participating in the mile run up the stairs of Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre during Saturday’s annual Fitness on the Rocks event.

Along the way, there was blood, sweat and maybe even some tears. Many called it quits before completing the trek. But not Nikita Cordier. The 18-year-old runner from Denver came in first in the male division with a time of 5 minutes, 40 seconds.
