You are registering for the 2022 session of Cancer to 14K. Cancer to 14K is a hiking-based conditioning program. There are 3 live, in-person tracks, and 3 virtual, on your own tracks.
LIVE TRACKS. The live tracks are EASY, MODERATE or DIFFICULT. The MODERATE and DIFFICULT live tracks are each 10 weeks long. The EASY track is 5 weeks long. The DIFFICULT track will train to summit Grays Peak, a 14,270' mountain. The MODERATE track will train to complete a 14,000 step long hike (about 5.5-6 miles) to Blue Lake, a lovely alpine lake in the Indian Peaks Wilderness west of Boulder (elevation about 11,400'). The EASY track is a 5-week program that will train to complete a 14,000' long hike, about 2.7 miles. The EASY hike will be at an altitude below 10,000'.
Both the live virtual tracks consist of a series of progressively more challenging hikes. You choose the track that's right for your level of fitness.
The in-person hikes start May 21, skip the July 4 weekend, and end the weekend of July 30. We hike on Saturdays, and keep Sundays as rain dates. There is one exception to the Saturday rule: we will attempt Grays Peak on FRIDAY, July 29.
If you want to volunteer for Cancer to 14K, stop right here! Fill out the volunteer registration form instead.
Each participant for the MODERATE and DIFFICULT in-person tracks must submit 2 medical forms before the program begins. One is a self-assessment, and the other must be completed by your physician. The forms are at the bottom of this page. Download them NOW before you select your desired track! The deadline for submitting the completed forms is May 7. Participants in the EASY track do not need to submit medical forms, but should notify their medical provider about their intention to participate in the program before the first hike.
You can email your forms to [email protected], or mail them to Live By Living, 2381 S. Lupine St., Lakewood, CO 80228.
Participants in the virtual tracks do not need to submit medical forms. However, as with any exercise program, you should consult with your physician before beginning the virtual program.
