SPORTS What: Women may get a three-minute head start in the SkirtChaser 5K, but the first person to cross the finish line--male or female--wins the $500 prize. Why: This race, organized by SkirtSports a maker of fitness apparel, is as much about fashion as athleticism. Bonus: The post-race party includes a fashion show as well as beer and food from Oskar Blues. Details: Sat 5 p.m. Fillmore Plaza, Fillmore and Second streets. $55. For more information, call 303-320-3482 or visit www.skirtchaser5k.com/denver.

SHOPPING What: Luxury jewelry artist Stephen Webster and his business adviser Jeff Feero start their second-annual jewelry road trip at Boulder's Art and Soul Gallery. Why: Not only is Webster's glamorous rock-and-roll jewelry worth checking out, but so is his cruiser--a 1959 Thunderbird, reworked with five pounds of silver and lots of precious stones. Bonus: Webster is documenting his road trip for Rolling Stone. This may be your chance to make it into the pages of that super sexy magazine. Details: Sat 11 a.m.-6 p.m; Sun 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Art and Soul Gallery, 1615 Pearl St., Boulder. Free. For more information, call 303-544-5803 or visit www.artandsoulboulder.com. FAMILY What: Denver Art Museum hosts its annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration. Why: Hip-hop dancers Tommy T and Rez Crew perform, while kids make flutes, button blankets, and wooden magnets. Bonus: DAM has the nation's most comprehensive collection of American-Indian art, but if you're looking for something new, visit the museum's recently completed reinstallation of its modern and contemporary space. Details: Sat 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Denver Art Museum's Acoma Plaza, 13th Ave. between Broadway and Bannock streets. Free. For more information, call 720-865-5000 or visit www.denverartmuseum.org.
