Join us Sunday June 23rd, for the Sunset Trail Running Festival in Gold Hill CO, benefiting the Boulder Watershed Collective.

There will be a 28K (17.4M), 12K (7.7M), 5K and Kids 1K trail race, that starts and finishes in the main street of Gold Hill at the Gold Hill Inn, and is run in part on the National Forest Service Trails.

The Sunset Trail Running Festival, offers a scenic tour of Boulder County and runners will enjoy varied terrain of dirt roads and trails, running through Ponderosa Pine and Aspen Forests, while taking in amazing views on this challenging course. The 28K course, heads South down to Salina, and then West along Fourmile Canyon Dr. to the historic town of Sunset. From there, runners will head North, up the the Old Railroad Grade, which is now known as the Switzerland Trail, and back to Gold Hill. The 12K course heads West along Gold Hill Rd to the famous Mount Alto Picnic area and back.

After the race, celebrate your accomplishment with your family, friends, and fellow participants at our after race party. We will have food, beer garden and music!
