After 7 successful years of Emma Coburn's Elk Run 5k, we are taking a break in 2024 due to schedule conflicts. Thank you to everyone who has raced with us previously, both in person and virtually. Through this reace, we have donated $300,000 to a local non-profit charity, Living Journeys. Living Journeys provides financial and emotional resources to local residents facing cancer. We are so proud of the contribution and beyond grateful to all of you who helped us achieve that.
For now, check out last year's results, photos and shop the merch!

Raising Money for Living Journeys

Living Journeys helps individuals and their families in a desperate time of need and offers some relief from financial stresses and emotional support programs offering tools to manage emotions such as fear, anxiety and confusion that often accompany a cancer diagnosis.  Patients with a calm, healthy mental state improve their quality of life, and may also enhance their chances for positive treatment results. 

Living Journey's has had an impact one way or another on everyone in the Gunnison Valley. The work they do is imperative to the health and well being of so many. We believe fully in Living Journeys mission and take great pride raising money for them!

Thank you all so much for your generous donations. Proceeds from every sign up go towards our fundraising goals!

Sign up for the event. Make a donation. Raise money. However you think you can contribute is greatly appreciated.
