Description: This is not your ordinary trail race. You'll have the rare opportunity to run on private, protected land that offers incredible views and a trail system you'll only experience if you participate. You and your guests will enjoy a post-race fiesta, featuring live music and a delicious lunch. Bring your family, friends, picnic blanket and chairs and enjoy a day at Bear Basin Ranch celebrating land conservation. The start and finish of the 10K run and 5K walk/run are at 8,913 feet elevation. The courses feature 475 feet of vertical gain on the 5K and 1,083 feet of gain on the 10K, with the 10K topping out at 9,039 feet. Both courses have short but steep sustained climbs that may require many participants to speed-hike or walk. All proceeds benefit San Isabel Land Protection Trust.
