The Lead

This fall, Broncos fans will be able to return to Empower Field at Mile High for Broncos games, but that's not all.

On Sept. 5, the organization will hold the ninth annual Broncos Fit 7K run/walk at the stadium, which allows fans to run across the 50-yard line on the field as the race's finish line.

In 2020, the race was held virtually as fans were encouraged to participate individually and safely due to COVID-19 precautions and restrictions, but in the years prior, the annual event brought Broncos fans together to celebrate the start of the NFL season.

Interested participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible due to limited spots that are expected to sell out.

Proceeds will benefit the National Sports Center for the Disabled, and all registered participants will receive an exclusive Broncos emoji T-shirt, a finisher's medal and a personalized race bib.

Below the Fold

With the 1997 Broncos winning the franchise's first Super Bowl and the 2015 star-studded team winning the organization's most recent championship, perhaps the 1998 team's achievement flies a bit under the radar even among Broncos fans. As CBS Sports' Bryan DeArdo writes, the '98 team is one of the three most-overlooked Super Bowl champions ever.

"There wasn't much drama associated with the Broncos' title defense," DeArdo wrote. "To no fault of their own, the Broncos didn't get the chance to face the Vikings, the team many considered to be Denver's only worthy challenger. Minnesota, however, did not fulfill its end of the bargain following a 15-1 season, as Dennis Green's Vikings were upset by the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game. The Broncos' second championship run would be better remembered had it ended with a win over Randy Moss and rest the Vikings."
