All Participants will receive a Goody Bag with coupons and gifts as well as a race T-Shirt.

In addition to the on site run/walk options we will continue the Virtual Race Option as well. 

What is a Virtual Race?? You can run on your treadmill at home, at the gym, around your block or just support the cause. It is up to You. Virtual Racers will have a T-Shirt mailed to them (shipping is included in your race fee) and Virtual Racers will NOT receive a Goody Bag from Race Day. Select Register Now and then select the Virtual Race Option. We will make every effort this year to get virtual racers their tee shirts BEFORE the actual race so that iyou can join us on the actual race day wherever you are.

Operation Underground Railroad exsts to end child sex trafficking. Founded by Tim Ballard, a former CIA and Department of Homeland Securoty Agent, every effort is made to work at the root of the trafficking issue and 'jump missions' will be aided with the funds raised here. Restore Innocence is a local Colorado Springs After Care Organization that works nationally. It exists to aid victims of human trafficking in the rescue, restoration and reintegration process by providing for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Aftercare is an integral part of the solution to ending sex trafficking and Restore Innocence is a major player within that solution. Funds will be split with both organizations.
