More Than Just Marathon Running

Though we do love marathon running, you're as likely to find us at a local 5k or 10k race, or at elevation, testing our legs and lungs, in our favorite mountain running races, ultra-distance events, and other fun, multi-sport challenges.

And, as much fun as crossing finish lines may be, our training days are some of the most pleasurable (even the tough ones), as we get to share them with friends, teammates, and the rest of the running community!

Pikes PeakPikes Peak is such a beautiful mountain! And, it is a great place to hike, run, and explore!
Snowshoe runningNeed a new, Winter activity? Snowshoeing is a favorite of ours. There is much less of a learning curve than most imagine!
track and field hurdlesIt has been a while since we've hurdled, though track workouts are a staple in our weekly training!

Get Comfy, Browse Our Site, & Tell Your Friends

Loon Mountain RaceWe LOVE the Loon Mountain Race!
