Overview

Runners will enjoy views of the city and Pikes Peak from the rocky bluffs. Come out and enjoy this amazing trail system, right in the heart of the city!

Description

Even though the course doesnt have much vertical gain, it will test runners with its technical trails. The start and finish lines are located at Maizeland and Academy. The race starts at the pavilion near the baseball fields and runs up into the park. You'll wind throughout the park and see the best trails it has to offer. The 25k is a single loop and the 50k will complete the loop twice. There will be one aid station for the 10k, four for the 25k, and nine for the 50k.
