Overview

The Greenland Trail Race offers four outstanding distances in southern Douglas County. Run the 4 Miler, the 8 Miler, the 25K, or tackle the 50K ultramarathon, Colorado's fastest 50K! With Pikes Peak as your backdrop, you'll cruise over a soft dirt trail on your way to a new personal best. With chip timing, an innovative technical running shirt in men's and women's sizing, food and beer at the finish, this race will make you want to come back for more!

Description

The Greenland Trail Race course is located within over 3,000 acres of the Greenland Open Space. Part of the Colorado Front Range Trail, the Greenland Trail joins into the Old Territorial Road, connecting the old Greenland Town site to Palmer Lake. The course passes through native grasslands, by ponds, through rolling Gambel oak hills and skirts ponderosa pine forests allowing for outstanding views of Pikes Peak and the surrounding buttes.

Starting from the northern trailhead, the course travels south on the Old Territorial Road. After just over a mile, runners will turn left on a two-track trail and connect with the Greenland Trail before running up the Luge Trail. At the top of the Luge Trail, runners will turn left on the Kipps Loop Trail and return to the shelter.

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 not be an aid station in the 4M.
