Join us for the Plane Pull presented by Subway!

We are working on the 2020 Plane Pull presented by Subway. Ensuring a fun, and safe, event for our participants is our top priority. Please check back often over the next several weeks as updates are coming soon.

If you’ve never participated in the Plane Pull before, this is your chance! This giant tug-of-war between your team and an airplane is a unique, team-building event that brings Colorado communities together for a friendly competition.

Teams will challenge each other to pull an airplane 12 feet across the tarmac in the least amount of time!

Teams will have a fundraising minimum to participate. All funds raised help Special Olympics Colorado provide year-round training, competitions and health screenings at no cost to 18,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and Unified Partners statewide.

Family Friendly!

Plane Pull is family friendly! Kids love pulling for a purpose and being part of a team with superhero strength. Upon check-in, hang out in Departure Lounge (the hangar at Signature) and visit with our vendors while enjoying sweet and savory bites, beverages and entertainment for all!

Costume Contest

Prizes will be awarded to the fastest, slowest, best dressed (Team costumes are a big plus!) teams plus the highest team & individuals fundraisers. Participants can also opt in to receive fundraising incentives during the registration process. Check back for the 2020 Incentives lineup!

Day of registrations will be accepted.
