Hardscrabble Mountain Trail Run 10K and 5K Walk/Run

Saturday, June 2, 2018

Bear Basin Ranch, Westcliffe, CO

This isn't your ‘ordinary’ trail race. You'll get the rare opportunity to run on private, protected land and enjoy a post-race fiesta with beer, live music and a delicious lunch. Bring your family, friends, picnic blankets and chairs to enjoy a day at Bear Basin Ranch.

Proceeds benefit San Isabel Land Protection Trust's work to protect land, water and wildlife in southern Colorado.

Protected lands help maintain our agricultural heritage, ensure clean water and provide critical wildlife habitat and scenic open spaces. They are integral to our health, happiness and economy. Colorado loses tens of thousands of acres to development each year, so it is more important than ever to protect these special places. Please run with us Saturday, June 2, so that together we can protect the land we love!

Entry fee $40 through May 27; $45 day of the race
Kids 17 and under run/walk free; School staff get a $10 discount

Sponsor a youth for $40!

Your entry fee includes a post-race lunch, live music and prize drawings
