Active at Altitude brings First Latinas Run Summit to Estes Park

July 30, 2021

Summit takes place to coincide with Rocky Mountain Half Marathon

Estes Park, CO – Active at Altitude, creator of experiences that educate, inspire, and empower an active, healthy, mindful lifestyle, has announced that the first Latinas Run 2021 Summit will take place in Estes Park, Colorado, July 29 – August 1, 2021. The summit is planned to coincide with the Rocky Mountain 5k and Half Marathon that takes place in Estes Park on Friday July 30 and Saturday July 31.

Latinas Run is an international organization that promotes running as a way to improve the physical and mental health of the Latina community. As a minority based organization, they’ve opened the door to highlight a community that is largely ignored when it comes to their health with the goal of inspiring more individuals to change the way the running industry looks. Maria Solis, an Afro-Latina runner, founded Latinas Run in 2016, discovering that cultivating interest and a community for running would shape her mind, body and soul.

The summit includes accommodation at Solitude Cabins, close to the race start and finish, an outdoor yoga session, a group hike around Lake Estes, a positive guided imagery session, selected meals, and complimentary swag from supporting sponsors. Nearly 40 Latina national ambassadors / runners are expected to attend the summit. The Rocky Mountain Half Marathon generously allowed a discount for all runners participating in the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon.

“What we do echoes through generations, so it’s important to lift Latina voices and
inspire our community so we can envision a future that is more inclusive,” comments Maria Solis, Founder, Latinas Run.

Terry Chiplin, owner of Active at altitude, first connected with Maria Solis in planning for the 2019 US Trail Running Conference. Maria proved to be a passionate advocate for inclusivity in running at the Conference, and has had amazing success with growing the reach of Latinas Run around the World, helping Latinx runners achieve better health outcomes for themselves and their families.
