2020 Women's Distance Festival Canceled

Because of the coronavirus, the 2020 Women's Distance Festival is canceled.  This race mainly supports the Girls on the Run.  Because of the school closures, the Girls on the Run groups have not been meeting for their runs, thus would not be ready for the Women's Distance Festival race in May.  Who knows when schools will restart, and setting up another date with Park & Rec is difficult because so many events are rescheduling. Thus there are too many unknowns to plan for the execution of this race in 2020.

There is a fall Girls on the Run training program, and it culminates with a 5K in November.  That will be a time for a big celebration that all the Girls on the Run runners can enjoy.

The Women's Distance Festival will return in 2021.

 

Description

Because of the coronovirus, this event is canceled for 2020, as the Girls on the Run organization is suspending all of their spring activities because of school closures and the 10 person limit on groups.  Thanks for your understanding.

Community Supporting 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.

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. Water bottles will be given to all finishers.

NO ANIMALS, NO BABY JOGGERS/STROLLERS, NO EARBUDS/HEADPHONES, NO BIKES/TRIKES
PLEASE RESPECT THE SAFETY OF ALL.

For the registration process to recognize that you are a Pikes Peak Road Runners member, if you have not already claimed your PPRR membership within RunSignUp, you first need to go to the Club page for the Pikes Peak Road Runners and claim you membership.  This is done as follows.

Go to: https://runsignup.com/Club/CO/ColoradoSprings/PikesPeakRoadRunners
(For Southern Colorado Runner members, go to: https://runsignup.com/Club/CO/Pueblo/SouthernColoradoRunnersTriathlonClub)

In the left column of buttons, click on "Members".
Search for your name.
Click on "Is this you?"
An e-mail will be sent to the E-mail address of this user, which contains a link with instructions to complete the process.
 

Once your membership has been claimed within the RunSignUp system, you will then have an account with RunSignUp.  If you have a family membership, you can then add family members that live in your household.  Those family members will also be able to apply the membership discount.

When you register for an event that offers discounts to PPRR members, on one of the first Registrant screens, you'll see a "Have An Account?" message followed by a SIGN IN button.  Click on the SIGN IN button and sign in using your RunSignUp account information.  That will allow RunSignUp to recognize that you are a PPRR member, and the member discount will be applied.
