Join us this August for a fun series of shorter midweek trail races. Our goal is to offer a fun, low-key series of races designed to give newer trail runners an opportunity to dip their toes into the trail racing waters, and to offer more experienced trail racers a chance to sharpen their speed on shorter, quicker courses.

All races will start at 6:00pm, ranging in distance from 5k to 12k. The races will be timed, with registration on the day only. Registration will begin at 5:00pm. To make the races as accessible as possible, registration fees will be on a donation, pay-what-you-can basis with a suggested $10 donation to help cover costs.

After each race, we will be providing pizza with support from the Fort Collins Running Club and beverages with support from New Belgium Brewing. Thank you to both of our midweek sponsors.

Race dates and distance are as follows:

  • Points are accumulated across the four race series, with something truly fabulous being awarded to the podium finishers in each division.
