Overview

The race is held in the diverse state park and features singletrack trails and great views.

Description

This is one of four races in the Mad Moose Trail Series, which is a series of low cost trail races in Colorado Springs. The 4-mile course covers the lower portion, or the prairie, in the state park. The park has a diverse ecosystem with lots of wildlife. In May, the flowers and trees will be blooming!

At 4 miles, this race is accessible to all runners looking for a fast and fun race. The minimal elevation gain, sweeping view and friendly trail all make this a perfect course for those looking for a first trail race.
