(Oops.... we got so excited we missed having an important link to start times, please ignore the original email). - sorry!

It is hard to believe we are onto our 4th event in the RunDenver Series, but it is the one we all love, Valentine's Day 4 Mile Run/Walk "Run 4 (miles) the Love of It.

We look forward to seeing you on February 14th at Washinton Park (and welcome our "Love at Home" virtual runners). For the love of it, please review all the essential information below. For those that will be doing the event virtually, you can find information on how to submit your results and take part in our Motigo Audio Experience. *Remember, if you can't attend in-person, you can switch to virtual - details provided below.

  • Head over to our Facebook page (details below) and share your Love Story with us about your spouse, BFF, etc. and you can win a prize.

We are glad we have long sleeve super soft custom shirts for you as the weather is calling for cold temps and some light snow. Weather-wise, the event is a go, so please layer up. Parks and Rec, as will our staff, will do their best to ensure areas are clear as can be of any significant snow and ice, but please use caution. So while we may be a bit cold on the outside, no doubt we will all have warm hearts!💖

There is plenty of parking located at South High School and around Washington Park. Please be sure you pay attention to parking signage around residential areas as some sections have limited one-hour public parking.
As a reminder, your bib is your entry into the event and other activities. You must wear it on your front and on the outermost layer of clothing you will be participating in. Your bib is also your timing tag and you will notice it on the back of your bib. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE. Also, please be careful not to fold, bend, or wrinkle your bib to prevent damage to the timing tag. The timing tags are disposable and do not need to be returned.
Are you are registered but unable to participate in-person at one or more of the RunDenver Series events and don't want to miss out on the cool swag or earning series points? No sweat! You can participate virtually to complete our epic custom combined RunDenver medal! We just need you to follow a few easy steps (please note, this is not for those of you that are already signed up for the whole series virtually).  

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Tell us which event(s) you want to run virtually via this private page. You can sign up for multiple all at once, or come back multiple times and sign up for each one individually. You must signup no later than the start time of each event (8 a.m.) on the event day.
  2. Select if you will pick up your swag at the next packet pickup, at the next event, or you can have it mailed to you for a small shipping and handling fee (you may also pick up your packet at the advanced packet pick up on February 6th).
  3. Run, walk, skip your event virtually when it works best for you, but to be included in the official results, you must complete the event from Feb 7 to Feb 14).
  4. Bask in your awesomeness!

General Process
  • Step 1: Create an account with our partners at SoDiSp.com (click here)The first step is to create an account. You can either enter a username and password or connect using one of the available direct integrations to popular fitness platforms.
  • Already have a sodisp account? Simply login with the same authentication method you used when creating an account to continue with step 2

  • Step 3: You will be asked for a verification code. This code is unique to you and the verification code is my "[last name][firstname]sb". So if my name is Jane Smith my verification code would be "smithjanevd" (all lowercase). Then click "Join Event"

  • Step 3: Start logging activities - Once you are connected with your event you can start entering activities. You can open the Connections section in your profile to connect your sodisp account with popular GPS devices and apps. Doing this has the benefit of automatically syncing your activities straight from the watch/app into your virtual event with no manual steps in between, or you can also do manual entry of your run/walk if you don't have, or don't want to use a GPS watch or app.
HOW MOTIGO WORKS (for both in-person and virtual)
Setup prior to your run/walk
  • Download the Motigo App. (Currently available for iOS and Android)
  • Sign up for a free account
  1. Allow Motigo to “access your location” - it needs to be able to do this so the messages play at the proper mileage points.
  • Choose "Race." On the next screen, pick "Select Event"then choose your “Distance”.
  • Share Event with your own personal link: Invite your friends and family to pre-record cheers that will play during your race.  They can download the Motigo App OR visit the Motigo website www.getmotigo.com and “Record Cheers” via web!

On the day of your Race/Run (in-person or virtual)
  • Before your run, open Motigo then click “Start Event” and you're good to go (make sure cellular and GPS is enabled for Motigo).
  • Turn on any other music or other fitness apps you typically use. Motigo won't interfere with them.
  • Start moving! The messages will come on periodically, and your other audio that's playing will automatically lower in volume.
  • When you're done, press "Finish Event." All your messages will be archived in “My Past Events” where you will have them to listen to again and again.
