Organiser's Description

Join us for our 13th event on Saturday, October 7th. New this year, we will host a one-day event. We willhave our 13th annual 5K, 2nd annual 8-mile trail race, and our inaugural half marathon TRAIL RACE! Ourhalf marathon course is now a trail race that will connect to our 8-mile course. We received such greatfeedback on our 8-mile trail run last year, we decided to expand on that and offer something spectacularto our half-marathon runners. All three races offer the unique experience of running over the famed RoyalGorge Bridge, America’s highest suspension bridge. These races will leave you breathless for more thanone reason. The views throughout the foothills surrounding the Bridge are stunning. Often, we seerunners forgetting about their best PR, stopping along the course and taking photos of the scenerysurrounding them. It is quite the experience. Moreover, this race event supports a special cause. Allproceeds from the event go to Starpoint, a local nonprofit organization that offers essential services to twovulnerable populations, children and their families, and adults with cognitive and physical challenges.
Your registration includes free entrance into the historic Royal Gorge Bridge & Park (on race day). Family members will receive a $10 discount. After the race, we want you to slow down, relax, and take in the unique views that our region has to offer.
All registered runners will receive a 50% discount for the Royal Gorge Route Railroad (good for raceweekend only).
There is a FREE KIDS’ race. All kiddos running the free race will receive a special coupon for the RoyalGorge Dinosaur Experience (good for one year).
The 5K is stroller friendly. All races are dog friendly, but only if your dog is friendly.
