Description:

A run for the full moon, followed by a tailgate gathering. Groups will be formed to run various distances (usually 2 to 5 miles) and then stay after the run for a tailgate (bring whatever you would like to share). A headlamp or flashlight may be needed depending on the time of year and length of the run.

This is a social group run, and not a competitive race. All ability levels are welcome, both walkers and runners. During the months with ample evening daylight, the runs are held at Red Rock Canyon Park, at Ridge Road and Hwy 24. The runs use various trails in the park, depending on what the group wants to do that night. Over the course of several months, you’ll be familiar with all the trails in the park and all it has to offer.

When evening daylight is not so ample, the runs originate from just outside the Trading Post at the Garden of the Gods (about a block south of the Trading Post). The runs typically stay on the roads in the Garden of the Gods, as that is easy and safe to handle in the dark. You can never go wrong with a run in the Garden.
