Who, Why, What, and How...
We are two women, two moms, and two athletes who decided we needed to give back..
Back in 2015, when StrideMob was born, we had one race,
The Lincoln Lollipop, a 4 mile trail run with a racing field of 42!
Oh how we've grown!
Our community of runners has grown from Castle Rock, to Littleton, Aurora and this year we will be making ourselves known in the heart of Denver. We have had first time runners, elite runners and everyone in between join us on the trails!
We have a lifestyle group called MobLife that exemplifies who and what StrideMob really mean. We bring running, snowshoeing, hiking, climbing, swimming and even biking into the fold on a weekly basis!
Take a look below and see just a few of the groups we are passionate about!
StrideMob Youth 13 and under (our MiniMob) run free at all of our races, are included in the official timed results and get their MiniMob t-shirts along with their bib, just like any racer! In 2018, 1,104 kiddos under 13 raced for free! That's a total of over 3500 miles on the pavement for these little feet!
Stridemob Grand Masters- These 65 and older athletes race with us at a discounted price of $20. We have seen our community grow and keep moving at every age!
Cancer fighters- With a disease that won't quit, our runners are fighting strong! The group of women and men that are at StrideMob races fighting cancer on a daily basis brings us at a loss for words. Their passion and strength fuel us.
Zackari Parrish Race- Your sponsorship money allowed us to donate our time and resources and be an integral part of this unbelievable charity run that brought over 3,000 friends together to honor Deputy Zackari Parrish, who was killed in the line of duty. StrideMob is already in the planning stages of the 2019 event.
Gummball Race- In the midst of tragedy yet another young officer, Heath Gumm was killed on duty. StrideMob was asked to assist in the organization of this charity run and we saw over 600 supporters attend the first year. 2019 is set and already on its way to being even bigger.
Rylie's Ark (Acts of Random Kindness) - Our standing charity. The Guentensberger family lost their 12 year old daughter Rylie in 2017 and have since brought many together in her name, growing Acts of Random Kindness by leaps and bounds. When asked to organize the race portion of this small gathering there was never any question that we would donate our time for this. For this “Free Entry” Race, 400 community members showed up and donated thousands to Rylie’s Ark. We can’t wait to see how this event grows each year! http://www.ryliesark.org/
Ainsley's Angels - When Law, director of the Denver Chapter of Ainsley’s Angels reached out and asked to meet with us we were humbled. Within a few minutes of speaking with Law and his daughter at a Wash Park coffee shop we were both in tears. Their mission, their beliefs and goals were so in sync with ours that this partnership was solid, even before our first run together! Their mission statement is this …..."Ainsley's Angels of America aims to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. Serving as advocates to providing education and participating as active members in local communities, we believe everyone deserves to be included." This group puts runners together with chariots riders who are unable to run alone. We proudly waive the race entry fee of each chariot rider. https://ainsleysangels.org/
The More Foundation Group- With the help of one of our amazing sponsors we are now partnered with the largest non-profit recycler of running shoes in the US. Moving forward we hope to be collecting used shoes at each race and making a bit of a difference in someone’s life! Read about the More Foundation Group here: https://www.morefoundationgroup.org/
We love what we do, we'd love to do more.. if you have ideas, passions, suggestions...please give us a shout!!!
