"Walking as a Volunteer with Achilles makes you a better person. The first time I walked with a visually impaired athlete during the Achilles Marathon in Prospect Park, she was able to tell me about the areas we were walking by. The birds and the open fields. I had the vision but missed what she heard by walking with me. I have learned to take better notice of the beauty in everyday life. We learn that you can accomplish whatever you want, there are only abilities no disabilities in life you just have to take advantage of them." - Achilles Volunteer.

With members in over 70 countries, we are still an organization of communities. Achilles Pikes Peak is our local chapter of Achilles International. We host weekly workouts where walkers, runners, and cyclists, with and without disabilities come together to achieve dreams and goals. You may hear the terms "athletes" and "guides" being used, but in reality, everyone who participates both contributes and takes away something from these workouts. In training and racing together, athletes with disabilities and able-bodied athletes learn to support each other and focus on what brings them together, rather than what might keep them apart. We welcome you to join our practice at any time. We meet on Monday nights throughout the year at 5:30 pm at Colorado Running Company in University Village (5262 N Nevada, Suite 140) and offer additional outdoor recreation opportunities as well. Search for "Achilles Pikes Peak" on Facebook and "Like" our page to find out what we're up to.

Hope to see you soon!
