Race - Oct 8, 2017
The Ridgeline Trail 12K course is located entirely within the confines of Philip S Miller Park and Ridgeline Open Space in Castle Rock, CO. The course is run entirely on dirt single and doubletrack trails. The Ridgeline Trail 12K is a challenging course with nearly 850′ of elevation change. There will be two aid stations in the 12K. Each aid station will provide Gatorade, water, and gels.
Come run Castle Rock’s newest trail race at the beautiful Phillip S Miller Park! The event will offer three distances: a 50k ultramarathon, a half marathon, and a 12K (7.5 miles). The event highlights the freshly cut, soft surface trails that are a part of the town’s largest ever park project.
The race will begin near Castle Rock’s state-of-the-art Miller Athletic Complex, a beautiful $30 million venue. The race course will showcase the newly constructed trails in Phillip S Miller Park and the single and doubletrack trails at the adjacent Ridgeline Open Space.
Don’t forget to take in the impressive views of the surrounding buttes and the scenic views of Castle Rock as the trail twists and winds over the flowing race course. If you have any energy left after your race, you can climb Challenge Hill, a 200-step staircase on the hillside near the finish line.
