Description:

What is RUFA?
Running Up For Air (aka RUFA) is an endurance mountain challenge originally created in Utah to raise money in support of the fight for improved air quality for those living along the Wasatch Front in Utah.

RUFA involves running up and down a mountain outside of Salt Lake, for 6, 12 or 24 hours, with runners asked to get pledges for Breathe Utah, a 501(c)3 non-profit that works tirelessly for the benefit of everyone in Utah who is subject to our unique air pollution challenges.

What is RUFA-CO?
Running Up For Air Colorado is the Colorado edition of Utah’s RUFA, an endurance running event to raise awareness and money in support of the fight for improved air quality for all of us who live along the front range of Colorado, encompassing everything from Colorado Springs to Ft. Collins, and, like Salt Lake, subject to unsightly and unhealthy winter air..

RUFA-CO, March 9, 2019, involves running up and down a mountain outside of Denver for 3, 6 or 12 hours. Here, too, runners are asked to get pledges for Protect Our Winters, a 501(c)3 non-profit that works tirelessly to reduce the effects of climate change, improve our air quality and preserve and protect our natural playgrounds.
