2020 Virtual CASA Superhero Run
Add to your calendar
Date: September 26, 9:00 am-8:00pm
Location: Virtual
Details: Because of the crowded and athletic nature of this event, as well as the large number of children that regularly attend, we’ve decided that it’s safest and in the best interest of children and all participants to be virtual superheroes this year! We’re excited to bring even more superheroes all across Colorado into the virtual race, costume and photo contests, and fundraising activities this year! Registration link: https://www.active.com/running/distance-running-races/virtual-casa-superhero-run-2020?int=

Superhero costumes are encouraged, but not required! We know a “virtual run” is a new and strange concept for a lot of people so just have fun with it as we make the adjustment this year. Running down the street in a superhero costume will definitely brighten someone’s day! It is also a great opportunity to run the race “with” your friends and family members who do not live in the Roaring Fork Valley. You could turn this race into a competition with your running club, softball team, book club, coworkers, and old friends you haven’t seen in a while.

Your participation in the CASA Superhero Run benefits CASA of the Ninth. CASA helps recruit, train, and support Court Appointed Special Advocates and provides the professional staff and resources they need to advocate powerfully for the most vulnerable children in our community.
