“The Greenland Trail Races offer smooth trails and outstanding views of Pikes Peak.”— Derek Griffiths
Featured Race - May 4, 2019
Starting from the northern trailhead, the course travels south on the Old Territorial Road. At the first intersection, runners will continue to head south (straight) towards Palmer Lake. After 3.5 miles, runners will turn left onto the Kipps loop and run up and over the saddle, which is the high point of the course at 7,400 feet, at five miles. The next three miles are all downhill to the eight mile finish. Runners will make a right on the Greenland Trail at seven miles. 50K and 25K runners will run to their respective turn-around points and then follow the Greenland Trail back to the Old Territorial Road where they will veer left and follow the above route again. Eight mile runners will run straight to the finish line at the shelter area. 50K runners will compete the loop four times before heading to the finish, while 25K runners will run the loop twice before going to the finish.
The entire course is run on dirt trails. With wide, smooth doubletrack trails, the Greenland Trail 50K is a very fast course and also very beginner friendly. There will be an aid station at mile 3.5 and 7.5 of each loop. Each aid station will provide Gatorade drink and water. There will be gels at each station for the 50K and 25K runners, starting on the second lap. There will also be a variety of salty food items. We encourage runners in the 25k and 50K to carry their own refillable bottles. This will help us to decrease the amount of paper waste we produce at our aid stations.
There will be a portable restroom placed at the southern edge of the course, at the 3.5 mile aid station.
