Volunteer opportunities with the RunFit range from starting a RunFit running program at an elementary school or middle school, community center, etc., to helping man a water station at one of our many RunFit events held throughout the year. No experience is necessary, so sign up to become a RunFit volunteer today.

Run Fit Mission

Our mission is to provide opportunities for children to engage in running at all levels as a means to a healthy, active and positive lifestyle. To reach out and inspire the forgotten young people in society; to give them a sense of believing in themselves; to help them understand that winning in life means trying your best, working your hardest, and never giving up; and to develop the awareness of a healthy lifestyle for the youth and their families in our community through running, and healthy nutrition.

  • RunFit has a been a great addition to Inez Elementary. We have more and more kids sign up each time. The kids learn the fun of running and how to take a large goal and break it down into smaller successive steps. The goal of running a first 5k is contagious also! We have staff and family members inspired by their student and join the fun. The kids learn about healthy snacks they have never tried before and learn to think about the food they eat as fuel for their body. RunFit has provided a source of pride and accomplishment for students for themselves and in the eyes of their classmates. RunFit has reminded the entire school community of the fun of physical activity and the pride of setting and accomplishing personal goals! Inez Elementary loves RunFit!

  • The RunFit program has been great for our school! RunFit is super for building student's self-esteem. RunFit is a community builder - it involves parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and faculty. I love the RunFit program it helps me promote and teach fitness for a lifetime

  • RunFit has been such an amazing experience for the Zuni community. Our students are developing lifelong healthy habits, parents are volunteering to support the program, and teachers are challenging each other to run in the RunFit races. Truly, RunFit has supported the development of a true community of runners from age 5 to 45!

Runfit News

Chunky Monkey Weather Cancellation

July 14, 2013

Dear Participants,

We are sorry to inform you that for the first time in our history and hundreds of events later, RunFit had to cancel the Chunky Monkey Run 2015, which was to be held on Sunday, July 12, 2015 at Valley High School.

Following the consultation with local authorities and event organizers, it was determined that the extensive lightning and rain caused unsafe conditions for the race. The decision to cancel was for the safety of all our participants, volunteers and staff. Safety is our number one priority, and even though we are extremely disappointed to cancel the event, we felt it was the most responsible decision.

We would like to extend to all of our registered participants for the Chunky Monkey Run 2015 an opportunity to run in our Dam to Dam Run scheduled for August 30, 2015. The Dam to Dam Run includes a 10K, 5K and Kids K. The participant information from your Chunky Monkey Run will be used as your registration information. There will be no need to “re-register,” Chunky Monkey participants will receive a RunFit t-shirt for their participation in the Dam to Dam Run.

We would like to thank all of our participants for their understanding, as well as our team of staff, volunteers and sponsors for all of their hard work in trying to make this event happen.

On behalf of those who live out of town, we would like to apologize for the cancellation, especially to those of you who may have difficulty attending our alternate event: Dam to Dam Run. Unfortunately, these circumstances were beyond our control. If you are unable to attend the Dam to Dam Run, please contact us.

Please note: We will provide you with a new timing chip and bib number at packet pickup:
Fleet Feet
Hoffmantown Shopping Center
8204 Menual Blvd. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87110

Please continue to visit our RunFit website: www.irunfit.org for additional information. Look for “Dam to Dam Participant Information” in the coming week for information on the Dam to Dam/Chunky Monkey Run.

For those of you entered in the “Summer Race Series” we are going to give you the ten points for entering the Chunky Monkey, and you will receive ten points for the Dam to Dam Run and any additional points you receive for your place at the Dam to Dam Run.

Participants who participated in our Chunky Challenge, your medals will be made available for pickup at the Dam to Dam Run (Finish).

Race Director
