embrace the challenge
May 2019 | Golden, CO
Type II Fun (n.) - Fun that begins with best of intentions and is generally miserable in the moment, but totally worth it for bragging rights at the bar later or building character. Often akin to suffering, and forgetting about how much it sucked when looking back on it.
Type II is a weekend of all things endurance. Through speakers, films, workshops, trainings, and socials, we'll build community across our chosen sports of passion (and pain!) and inspire future adventures. Whether a seasoned endurance athlete, or contemplating toeing the line on of your first endurance race or challenge, there is something for everyone.

a Platte River float and clean up
July 20, 2019 | Platte River - Denver, CO
Water, water everywhere. We love water in all its forms, especially snow, whitewater, ocean waves, and frosty beers. But what we really love is clean water to fuel all of our liquid adventures. H2O Flow isn’t your average river clean up. We’re aiming to be the largest volunteer clean up of the Platte River, taking to the water in a myriad of crafts from our sponsors including SUPs, kayaks, inner tubes, and an inflatable swan or two. Join us to:
Clean up the river a bit
