RUN to Change Lives™ realizes these are trying times for Colorado small businesses who are the backbone of our economy. They shed blood, sweat, and tears just about every day. We also realize the racing community misses the camaraderie we live for on race day. So let’s lace up together with purpose to support the small business community and get people moving safely for our physical and mental health.
How Does This Benefit Small Business?
Every week we use the proceeds from registrations to purchase gift cards from small businesses to give away randomly every Friday at 5PM starting April 10th to some of our participants.
How Does It Work?
Sign up for the challenge!
Join the RUN to Change Lives Facebook Group and immediately post your mileage goal, then post pictures of each completed RUN, walk, or bike ride to the group and tag us #runtochangelives
Join one of our Strava Clubs (it’s free) to track your miles and compete for top prizes:
Join us live every Friday at 5PM beginning April 10th for random give-aways to our participants. Every week we will use the proceeds from registrations to purchase local prizes from small businesses. More details on this coming soon.
Invite a friend to sign up. The more registrations we have the more we can invest back into small business.
At the conclusion the top 3 overall runners/walkers, and the top 3 overall bikers with the most mileage receive top prizes. The remaining proceeds benefit the Colorado COVID Relief Fund.
What do I get for signing up?

Can I run or walk with my furry friend?
YES! In fact, you can register your dog and receive a QuaRUNtine branded bandana so they can show their support and inspire other canines to get moving!
How do we stay safe outdoors?
Colorado’s Stay At Home Order allows for essential and necessary activities outdoors such as walking, hiking, cross-country skiing, running, biking, etc. so long as we adhere to social distancing practices and stay at least 6 feet apart.
People who are at high risk of severe illness are advised to participate at home on a treadmill or simply walking around the house, and people who have illness should self-isolate and are not encouraged to participate.
How are small businesses chosen?
RUN to Change Lives™ has a list of small businesses who have partnered with us and supported our events over the years.
