Description:

10 miles – Course Details: Creede’s Burro race will start and end on Main Street, looping up the historic Bachelor Loop and down the winding West Willow Creek 4×4 road, about 10 miles! Competitors will pass by the Commodore Mines, up the Black Pitch, through the Weaver town site and past Amethyst Mine (with a view of the Last Chance mine). The course leaves the Bachelor Loop Road at the Midwest Mine site, where runners will climb up-and-over Campbell Mountain and traverse down into the East Willow Creek. Several mines can be seen along this part of the race, including the remnants of the Kentucky Belle, griping the cliffs hundreds of feet above the road. Finish off the final three miles of the race with a gradual downhill that ends on a cheering Main Street!
