Please help keep our areas, citizens, and first responders SAFE by adhering to all regulations.
Join us for our second annual fun run at the Royal Gorge Park Trails. We'll meet at Echo Canyon River Expeditions, where participants will board a bus and head to the starting line near the East Ridge Campground. We're offering two distances this year - a 5K or 5.55 Mile. Both are challenging, but both offer amazing views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains.
**Please note that this event takes place on natural-surface singletrack trails. There WILL be loose rocks and varied terrain. Those who are not comfortable on uneven surfaces should not participate.**
While this run is NOT TIMED, you can vie for a crisp $20 bill - waiting for the first person in each age group (under 30, 30+, male / female) to snag it! Finishers will board a bus back to Echo Canyon, where your swag bag, complete with a coupon for $2 off a Colorado craft beer AND a snazzy commemorative Nalgene.
