Climb4Change is a unique racing event that raises money and awareness for the Town of Castle Rock’s Adaptive Recreation program. Athletes, volunteers, and businesses band together with the families of children with cognitive and physical disabilities for the races up the 200-step Challenge Hill built into the side of a mountain at Philip S. Miller Park.
Castle Rock's Adaptive Recreation Program is designed to enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities through participation in adapted programming. These programs will help expand participants' health and wellness, self-esteem, and independence. The participants will develop relationships through compassion, kindness, and service to others.
There are five events to choose from to contribute to the cause:
Power Hour – Up and down, up and down, up and down…for 60 minutes! The course record is 19 laps.
Trail Reps – Up the stairs, down the switchbacks, and repeat. You’ve got 30 minutes. The course record is six laps.
New! ClimbNRun 5K – Climb the stairs, down the switchbacks, and run the trail for three miles!
Race to the Top – One time, that’s it! Can you do it in under 45 seconds?
Run4Fun – This is a non-timed family-friendly activity that can be completed at any time during the event except at the start of any races.
Don't like crowds? Run up the stairs on your own time. Register for the VIRTUAL CLIMB and let us know which challenge you will be running. We'll send your event T-shirt and finisher medal 1-2 weeks after the event.
Every finisher receives a medal and T-shirt. Registration includes coffee, food, live DJ, participation medal, t-shirt, prizes, and a race like no other! T-shirt sizes are not guaranteed for participants who register after May 1st.
All funds and donations raised at the Climb4Change fundraiser are used to provide scholarships and to provide access to a wide variety of activities in a safe, respectful, and ability-focused environment.
