Plane Pull presented by Subway

Special Olympics Colorado’s Plane Pull presented by SUBWAY Restaurants is a giant tug-of-war between your team and a 164,000 lb airplane. The Plane Pull will take place at the Denver International Airport, one of the world’s largest airports.

Teams of no more than 25 challenge each other to pull a jumbo jet 12 feet across the tarmac in the least amount of time! Teams must raise a minimum of $1,250 to participate ($50 each on a 25 person team). All funds raised help Special Olympics Colorado provide year-round training and athletic competition to thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities across the state of Colorado.

Highlights of this Special Olympics Colorado benefit will include exciting exhibits, vendors, food & entertainment for all!

Prizes will be awarded to the fastest team, slowest team, best dressed team, top team & individuals fundraisers, and fastest LETR team. Top fundraisers will be determined based on totals as of Friday, August 11, at 3:00 p.m.

You can register online today. Day of registrations will be accepted.

Thank you for joining us for our Plane Pull on August 12th!
