Spring will be here before we know it, which means it will be time for the XTERRA Colorado Trail Run Series to spring into action again. The annual XTERRA Cheyenne Mountain State Park 24K/12K/5K is scheduled for April 12 at the picturesque Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado Springs. The event is open to runners of all ages and skill levels.
Experienced distance runners can opt for the 24-kilometer course, beginners can take the 12-kilometer challenge and the entire family can have fun enjoying the 5-kilometer course. As expected for a race in Colorado, the race trails will take runners to thin-air elevations ranging from 6,500 to 7,200 feet above sea level.
Race Director, Victoria Seahorn, is pleased to announce a most exciting new partnership this year. “Nicole Mahobian is not only a gifted athlete, winning the XTERRA Marathon Of Trail Races Half Marathon three consecutive years, but also the founder of an amazing organization, the Colorado Young Leaders (CYL).
