Colorado Peaks Challenge

Winter is coming. Make your plan to make it count! Your Town, CO 80200 US


During the challenge (Nov 27, 2020 through March 31, 2020) run, jog or walk (row, swim, scoot, skate, bike, ski) as many miles as you desire each day.  Log your miles through our online tracker and it will compile your daily miles into a cumulative total. When you join a TEAM of up to 6, all of your miles are compiled to show total progress.  If your buddy in Vermont hikes 10 miles today while you run 5 miles in Washington, your daily total is 15 miles of progress on our virtual mountain ascents!

WHEN should I run/do this?
You can run this ANYTIME you desire in until March 31, 2021.  Starting at the end of November, if you divide it evenly, that's a little over 5 miles PER DAY! 

WHERE should I run/do this?
That is 100% your choice.  If you choose to run outdoors, please take every precaution ordered in your area.  In most of Colorado, that means staying NEAR your HOME.

How do I report my TIME?
On the morning of November 27, 2020, the virtual results submission link will be active.  You’ll be able to submit YOUR time through that link until the end of March.  Record EVERY activity you do through the link and your miles will be added up along the way!  See the TRACKING page for more details.

Are TIMES verified?
No.  For the virtual event, times reported are on the ‘honor system’.  You do NOT have to post a time in order to log your distance.  You may enter that you completed 10 miles and NOT enter an associated time.  Your time will show up as "NONE".

WILL RESULTS be posted?
You bet!  Starting the afternoon of November 27, preliminary results will be on the RESULTS page of the website, showing every participant's progress!  To see the progress of teams, click on the team name in the results screen.

Will participants be rewarded based on PERFORMANCE?
No, because participants are running in different locations, times, etc. we will not award anything based on performance.  Results are just listed in order of distance completed. There are no "rankings" based on pace or time.

HOW will I get my SWAG?
It will be sent through USPS at the end of March.  If your address in your RunSignUp account is outdated, please update it now.  Click on Profile where you may then edit your personal details.   If your address is not in RunSignUp, you may add it now.  Likewise, you may email

WHEN will I get my SWAG?
Swag will start arriving at your location in March 2021.

I was selected to win an extra prize through a social media contest.  When/how do I get that prize?
Physical prizes will be mailed with your race swag.  Digital prizes will be emailed whenever you earn them.

Do I get a bib?
Sure! We have created a Digital bib! Go to, click "profile." Scroll down to find this race and you'll see a button that says "digital bib!" Download, share on social media, or print it out and take some post-run pics with it for fun.

Where does the money go? (The following is taken directly from the 3W Races website FAQ page:)

3W Races is a for-profit company with five employees and a dozen part-timers. 100% of employees live, work, play and raise their families right here in Colorado. Racer registration fees pay for the expenses of the event which include permits, insurance, music licensing, SWAG, port a johns, timing chips, bibs, tents, tables, trucks, generators, arches, signage, sound system, cameras, websites, storage, computers, graphic design tools, food, ice, water, trash and recycling removal.  It also pays for the staffers, police and paramedics who work with all of that equipment on the course and at the expo area on race day. 
Unlike 'charity races' that are run by volunteers (which we think is pretty cool for the races that pull it off well!) 3W pays its professional staff to give racers a professional experience.
("Professional Experience means many things including: we start on time, we tell you what you need to know in advance of the race, we know the answers to your questions, our race directors are certified, we know USATF rules, we use technology to be accurate in our operations and communications, we offer premium, gender specific swag/t shirts featuring the event name and not a host of business logos, we have permission to operate when and where we do, we measure courses to the correct measurements, we offer lively music and announcements appropriate in a family atmosphere, we post finisher times online in real time, we use back up timing systems to catch errors or misreads, and we say please and thank you.)
And, unlike 'charity races' that receive many of their swag and food items as donations or get reduced fees on city services, 3W pays for the elements of the race.  3W pays for its swag.  (And pays taxes on it.)  3W pays for items you see, eat, hear and keep on race day.  Your race registration fee is how we do it! 

For this virtual challenge, many of these expenses remain as overhead for our company.  In this particular challenge, rather than paying for physical race day amenities such as food and portojohns, that portion of registration fees has been redirected into shipping/handling/packaging.

Does 3W Races donate to charity?

Yes, each year, the 3W Races Ambassadors request donations from 3W to the charity of their choice and many thousands of dollars are donated in that manner! 

What does it mean to be a 'Charity Partner'?

Everyone of our 40+ races in Colorado is partnered with a humanitarian charity operating in the city where the race is held.  Our charity partners are hand selected by our staff and owners and each operation is toured by 3W representatives.  In many cases, our 3W Races Ambassadors and staff also spend time volunteering at our charity partner locations. We do NOT require additional participation from the charity as a condition to be featured as an event partner.  Most of the charities with whom we partner are already operating with bare-bones staffing/volunteers, so we do NOT tax them with a requirement to provide man-power for event production, etc.
Charity partners receive several benefits from association with 3W: 
1) Awareness.  Because we partner with ultra-local charities, many racers have not heard of the charity.  Participating with us, the charity gains exposure for their mission through website presence and the ability to be present on race day to meet participants.
2) Fundraising/Donations.  Each charity is set up to collect funds contributed by racers during the registration process.  This is completely optional and not forced upon the racer.  Funds donated go directly to the charity from the collection provider and do not pass through the race company.  In some cases, 3W provides incentives for donations, such as free race entry at certain levels, etc.
