RUN to Change Lives COVID-19 Update

First and foremost we want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support for our event and cause of battling PTSD and mental health. Our 2nd annual event scheduled for next weekend on March 21st was gearing up to be quite a production with almost a year of planning behind the scenes. We truly could not do this without each and every one of our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and participants. We are sincerely grateful.

We want to take this opportunity to let everyone know what our current plans are regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts, and announce that we are following the guidance of the Governor of Colorado to postpone any event over 250 people. Now that the ShamROCK Stampede is officially postponed, we are exploring options to move the event into the future with the exact same venue at the Douglas County Events Center. We are working with all municipalities to ensure the safety of everyone before we can announce a new date. We are also postponing our advanced packet pickups. We have t-shirts and medals in hand and many other vendors paid and ready to provide services. We are working hard and will communicate new plans just as soon as we have firm direction.

Rest assured we stand behind our name… RUN to Change Lives. We will get through this together and continue to provide opportunities to Change Lives Together in a positive way.

Thank you all for your continued patience and understanding as we work through all of this. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

In an effort to promote safety, the ShamROCK Stampede is using an assigned wave system for the start. If you wish to run or walk with others at the event, select the wave of your slowest person for all registrants. Note: You may move to a slower wave than assigned, but you cannot move to a faster wave than assigned. Remember your time does not start until you cross the timing mats.

    • Wave #1 – For those of you faster than 8-minute pace per mile. No strollers or dogs.
    • Wave #2 – For those between 8-10 minute pace per mile. No strollers or dogs.
    • Wave #3 – For those between 10-12 minute pace per mile. No strollers or dogs.
    • Wave #4 – For those slower than 12-minute pace per mile. No strollers or dogs.
    • Wave #5 – All leisurely walkers, strollers and well mannered K9 pals. Party in the back!

The number of waves are at the events discretion for safety and enjoyment of all participants and may change as needed.

NOTE: You do not have to register your little ones who are riding in a stroller unless you want them to have a shirt and bib.


Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat will keep us from hosting the ShamROCK Stampede. Keep in mind the route may not be cleared in the event of concerning Colorado weather conditions. Please plan accordingly. We assume no liability for injuries.


No refunds will be given. If you are unable to attend, your registration constitutes a tax-deductible donation.
