The Womens’ Distance Festival is no longer an event for “women only”. This event is now a “community” event, supporting the Girls on the Run® of the Rockies.

Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization that uses the power of running to change the way girls ages 8-13 see themselves and their opportunities. Girls learn to stretch themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and socially through a unique 10 week curriculum that combines self-esteem, character-building lessons with training for a 5K. For many of the girls this will be their first 5K event.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Girls on the Run® of the Rockies™. Join the Pikes Peak Road Runners and be part of the recognition of this organization. All monies will stay in our community and be designated for overall program support.

This race is a true handicap event in that it measures your fitness level based on your age, sex, height and weight! Following a victory at the Boston Marathon, Bill Rodgers said that his effort to run a 2:10 was not nearly as difficult as the effort of those who were “out there for 4 1/2 hours!” How would you stack up against those speedsters, the Hares, if you were able to factor out some reasons for running a 4 1/2 hour marathon? How good is your training?

Over the last several years, Woody Noleen and Bob Mutu have worked on handicap charts for our local running scene. Given that we run high altitude, we wanted to somehow factor in training at 6500 feet. We worked with...
