Event Fundraising Goal: $40,000 Campaign

At Running Rivers, we are a Colorado-based 501c3 organization which firmly believes that the best way to ensure the preservation, protection, and maintenance of our irreplaceable public lands and waters is to develop and foster the stewards who will stand up in their defense. Our programs create unique opportunities for people to experience public lands and waters in novel and fun ways, to expand their depth of understanding of the importance of healthy functioning freshwater ecosystems, and to invest in their time, money, and sweat through on-the-ground stewardship projects. The Lake Fork Flyathlon is a unique, conservation-minded race event that integrates three of the West's greatest activities; trail running, fly-fishing, and craft beer.

Most importantly, the 7th Annual Lake Fork Flyathlon is a fundraising event for coldwater conservation projects, with a focus on native trout. Since 2014, our Flyathlon events have raised more than $500,000 for native trout related projects completed through our diverse conservation partners, including Colorado Trout Unlimited, the Western Native Trout Initiative, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.  

Importantly, all of this incredible conservation impact has come through individual donations from the friends, family, and colleagues of our amazing Flyathletes.  From amazing folks like you.
