Cancer to 14K | Grays Peak track registration
Public -by Katherine Dietterich  |  Cancer to 14K

Cancer to 14K is a 10-week hiking-based conditioning program for cancer survivors and caregivers. It includes 10 weekly hikes plus recommendations and coaching for exercising in between the weekly hikes. Hikes get progressively harder over the 10 weeks, culminating in YOU standing on top of GRAYS PEAK, a 14,270' high mountain!

Hikes generally start at 7 AM on Saturdays. We'll use Sundays as rain dates. We'll hike Grays Peak on FRIDAY, July 26 to avoid weekend crowds. We will likely offer a makeup date if the hike on the 26th is canceled due to weather.

Here is a list of the 10 hikes in order, and general locations:

May 25 Green Mountain - Box o' Rocks loop (Lakewood)

June 1 Apex Park: Pick 'n Sledge-Grubstake loop (Golden)

June 8 Deer Creek Canyon Park: Plymouth Mountain (Littleton)

June 15  Deer Creek Canyon Park Red Mesa Loop (Morrison)

June 22 Staunton State Park (Pine)

June 29 Herman Lake (I-70 east of Loveland ski area)

July 6 Heart Lake (Nederland)

July 13  Peak 6 (Copper Mountain)

July 20  Golden Bear Peak (West portal Eisenhower Tunnel)

July 26 (Friday) Grays Peak (I-70 Bakerville exit #221)

Please mark your calendar for Thursday, May 16 at 7:30 pm for a virtual training session. We will cover volunteer duties, necessary hiking gear, general safety, and nutrition. You will receive a link to join from Dan Miller closer to the date. 

When you register, you will be required to submit a self-assessment form covering medical and fitness issues. You will also need to obtain a medical clearance form from your physician's office prior to attending any hikes.

After we have your forms, we'll invite you to register for each of the individual hikes on the calendar. The individual hike postings will have additional details about meeting location, etc.
