Prepare for some fun in Cañon City! Enjoy scenic views along the rim of the Royal Gorge, 900 feet above the Arkansas River.

The 60k, 40k and 20k courses will follow a 20k loop with 1700 feet of climbing per loop. This is the fast-paced spring race you’re looking for to get back into racing mode for your summer schedule.

The 10k loop will traverse some of the same trails but cut through the middle of the park for a shorter run with 725 feet of gain, making it a great first trail race or a speedy springtime 10k.

All races will start/finish at the East Ridge Campground.
