Come celebrate the 8th annual Colorado Springs Marathon presented by Centura Health on Saturday, October 1, 2022.  Whether you are a seasoned runner or looking to tackle your first 5k, we have you covered with 4 events to choose from.  Beginning and ending on Vermijo at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, the full marathon will head West on Colorado Ave and drop into America the Beautiful Park. From there, the route will head north on the Greenway Trail through Monument Valley Park. The Greenway Trail is approximately 15 feet wide, cement for the first mile and hard pack pea gravel before the path turns to a paved surface through the Greenway and Santa Fe trails before turning back and returning the same way back to the finish line.

Location: Four different city and county parks

Registration Fee: See Website

These races focus on cross country running, using the trails and obstacles that are offered at each race venue. The courses are challenging, and sometimes a bit crazy, but the atmosphere is filled with smiles and fun. By design, these are not your ordinary 5K or 10K races.


As long as kids are big enough to walk, they can participate in the kids’ series! Each kid can run whatever distance they feel comfortable with. This is a trail series and may include such things as hay bales, rocks, water, and other obstructions. Each child receives a ribbon after each race & it’s FREE!

The Cheyenne Mountain Run on October 8, 2022 will feature three trail races, a 25K to the top of Cheyenne Mountain for the more advanced trail runner, a 10K for experienced runners and a 5K trail run/walk for all to enjoy. Each race will have different colored bibs with different number sequences.

All three races will start at the Limekiln Trailhead at 9:00 AM and all runners will start out going up the Talon Trail. The start will be a staggered start with the fastest runners starting first and progressing smoothly to starts for runners with 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 10 plus minute per mile paces. Walkers doing the 5K will start last. The races are chip timed which records your start and finish time as you cross the start/finish line and your total race time will be calculated by subtracting your start time from your finish time.
