We are back and bigger and better than ever! Come celebrate the 7th annual Colorado Springs Marathon presented by Centura Health on Saturday, October 2nd. 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

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!

This may be different than other “races” you’ve done. We like to keep things relaxed, and all of our events are untimed so everyone can run or walk at their own pace. Instead of closing down the streets, we ensure a safe and fun running route on sidewalks, through parks, and along trails. The course is staffed with encouraging volunteers to cheer you on and point you back to the brewery for your much-deserved beer!
