Running Up For Air

Running Up For Air Colorado is the Colorado edition of Utah's RUFA, an endurance running event to raise awareness and money in support of the fight for improved air quality for all of us who live along the front range of Colorado, encompassing everything from Colorado Springs to Ft. Collins, and, like Salt Lake, subject to unsightly and unhealthy winter air..

RUFA-CO, March 9, 2019, involves running up and down a mountain outside of Denver for 3, 6 or 12 hours. Here, too, runners are asked to get pledges for Protect Our Winters, a 501(c)3 non-profit that works tirelessly to reduce the effects of climate change, improve our air quality and preserve and protect our natural playgrounds.

Christie Aschwanden in conversation at Berkeley Park

Christie Aschwanden is the lead writer for science at FiveThirtyEight and health columnist for the Washington Post. A finalist for the National Magazine Award, her writing has appeared in Outside, Discover, Smithsonian and O, The Oprah Magazine. She lives in Colorado.

GOOD TO GO IS an eye-opening exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training.

In recent years recovery has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.

In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady’s infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles’ pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps’s “cupping” ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas.

At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Neal Henderson began coaching endurance sport athletes in the early 1990’s and founded APEX Coaching in 1999. He has helped numerous athletes achieve first-time finishes, and has coached several national champions, multiple world champions, and several Olympians. Neal raced triathlon professionally from 2000-2003 specializing in XTERRA and Winter Triathlon. He is an Elite USA Triathlon and USA Cycling certified coach and was the 2007 USA Cycling Developmental Coach of the Year. He was also named the 2009 USA National Cycling Coach of the Year and in 2011 was awarded the Doc Councilman Coach of the Year award by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) for the use of science in his coaching. Neal coached Rohan Dennis of BMC Pro Team to a UCI Hour Record of 52.491 kilometers in February of 2015 and coached Evelyn Stevens to a still standing women’s UCI Hour Record of 47.98 kilometers in February 2016. Neal has been a staff member at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games as cycling coach, and has served on multiple coaching committees for both USA Cycling and USA Triathlon.

Devil on the Divide

Devil on the Divide - September 8, 2018

Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District (CCMRD) is pleased to present one of the most beautiful and challenging trail racing events in the state of Colorado with breathtaking (literally and figuratively) views of Clear Creek County and the Continental Divide. Participants will reach a top altitude over 13,000 feet.

The 50K course climbs over 6500 feet.  Due to the difficulty and remoteness of this race, prior ultra running experience is required.

New as of 2016 – a 22K course option!
The 22K course follows the first part of the 50K, making it one of the toughest half-marathons in the state, with 3400' of climbing, reaching an altitude of 13,200'.  The 22K course is not recommended for novice trail runners.  It is a tough course at high altitude.

Cut-off times are enforced for both options.

The Devil made me do it...

Running Up For Air

Running Up For Air

Suffer Better is hosting the inaugural Colorado version of Jared Campbell’s successful Utah-based Running Up for Air event.  Launched by Jared in Salt Lake City some 5 years ago, RUFA draws attention to Salt Lake's horrific winter air and raises money for improving Salt Lake's air quality. The CO version is intended to do the very same thing. Our air here in the Mile High City during the colder months can be, as you know if you live here, also horrific.  A growing population, ongoing construction and emissions from an increasing number of cars and trucks contribute to reduced air quality, while regular winter inversions occasionally hold the poor air over the city like a foul-smelling, nasty-tasting blanket.  The health consequences for everyone, including athletes, can be harsh.

We will be hosting the first Colorado Edition of Running Up for Air on a parcel of private land near Evergreen, CO. The course begins at 7700 feet and each lap takes runners up to 8500 feet and views of Mt Evans and Denver.  Each lap is a 2.7 mile circuit of forest road and rugged trail through a beautiful pine forest. Runners sign up to run for 3, 6 or 12 hours, repeating laps up to Granite Peak and back down.  Participants are also asked to obtain pledges for their laps from friends, family and colleagues, the proceeds going to Conservation CO, a local 501c3 organization, to support their work and advocacy to improve our air.  We will also be donating 10% of our proceeds to Jared's chosen nonprofit in Salt Lake, Breathe Utah, which also focuses its good work on clean air.

 

Join us March 31, 2018 and put your energy into running for clean air!
