Into the Wild Running Festival

This event is a bit southeast of Fort Collins, but it sounds really cool especially since it involves animals. Check it out!

Hi – My name is Chris, I live in FTC but work at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg. Please forgive me, I farmed your email address from your website. But this is very appropriate, I promise you!

We’re putting on a new event this year, the Into The Wild Running Festival, June 7 & 8th. The website we’ve developed will give you all the details: All proceeds benefit The Wild Animal Sanctuary. More about the event:

EVENT: Into the Wild Running Festival
DATES: June 7 & 8, 2014
To BENEFIT: The Wild Animal Sanctuary (501(c)(3))

A new running event to benefit The Wild Animal Sanctuary, the nation’s oldest and largest refuge for rescued and rehabilitated large carnivores. Housing over 330 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Wolves, Leopards, Lynx and more on 720 sprawling acres just 30 miles northeast of Denver, The Wild Animal Sanctuary features an innovative elevated walkway that allows our animals to be observed by the public in a stress-free environment. You’ll see more wildlife in 10 minutes than you’ve seen in your whole life, and your admission is tax deductible. Come run with the wild things on June 7 & 8 and gain free entry to the sanctuary with your paid race registration. The race courses – 5K, 10K, Half and Full Marathon are all newly certified by USA Track & Field, and each day will feature a full expo with vendors, live entertainment and food, and learn all about America’s Captive Wildlife Crisis, and how your participation in this event helps fight the wave of animal cruelty at home and abroad.

Your website said you only promote events in NoCo. I commute from FTC to The Sanctuary every day, it’s a really easy ride. 25 south to 52 East to 53. I think your members would love to know about this race, it’s so unique! I hope you agree. If you do and if you’d share our info with your members, we’d really appreciate it. Thanks so much for your consideration!
