This event will benefit Achilles Pikes Peak, a local nonprofit that helps people with various disabilities to enjoy the trails and as we do. Our 50K, and 10K courses offer fast and runnable singletrack in beautiful Cheyenne Mountain State Park at the base of Cheyenne Mountain. Register early and get our discount prices! 50K for $60. 25K is $45, 10K for $30! Register online > http://bit.ly/CMTR17 - If you would like to volunteer, please contact Tim Bergsten at tim.bergsten@gmail.com. All runners will receive our one-of-a-kind Tech T-shirt. Medals to the top three overall male and female runners, and masters champions, in all three races. Prize money awraded in the 50K and 25K. Bring the family! There is a playground for the kids near the start/finish, and plenty of room to run. The coffee will be ready when you arrive, and we’ll have food for everyone, runners, family members, spectators, from Roman Villa, one of our running community’s favorite restaurants. The courses cross grassy meadows and pierce dark stands of timber beneath the granite face of iconic Cheyenne Mountain. The 50K and 25K course includes a “figure eight” layout with the start, finish and drop bag area located near the intersection of the “eight.” The 10K will be challenging but doable by anyone. Cheyenne Mountain State Park is a located about five miles south of downtown Colorado Springs.
