We believe in the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death.
We run as a Prayer, to defend children in the womb, so that they may be born and united with our Christian community.
We run to build Endurance, for the race is long and we must keep our eyes fixed on You Lord.
We run for Awareness, so our culture will view all human life as a reflection of Your glory Lord.
We run for Charity, to provide support for mothers and fathers tempted to abort their child, and healing support for post-abortion women, men, and families.
We run to End abortion, for Christ died so that all may live. Guard us all, born and unborn, with Your PEACE, Lord. For in You, life is victorious.
We pray and run in Your name, JESUS CHRIST. Amen.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. Saint Padre Pio, pray for us. Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

St. Padre Pio is the patron of LIFE Runners. St. Pio had the wounds of Christ from 1918 to 1968. He offered up his suffering to bring thousands healing and peace. St. Pio, pray us forward to prevent and heal abortion wounds. St. Pio prayed, “My past, O Lord, to Your mercy; my present, to Your love; my future, to Your providence.” LIFE Runners founder Dr. Pat Castle encountered St. Pio during the Pikes Peak Ascent race (19 Aug 2006): podcast 51, newspaper, TV. LIFE Runners completed the 2017 St. Pio Relay in Italy.
The LIFE Runners Creed is built on the word “P-E-A-C-E” based on this quote from St. Mother Teresa. “Abortion is the greatest threat to peace in the world.” She also said, “Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Lead me from death to Life, from falsehood to Truth. Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust. Lead me from hate to love. Let us pray together, work together, to build peace and justice for all.”
