Meet the challenge of the trail and support land conservation during the 3rd Annual Hardscrabble Mountain Trail Run!

This won’t be your 'ordinary' trail race!

Let’s run together to protect land, water, and wildlife in southern Colorado! All proceeds to benefit San Isabel Land Protection Trust.

  • "The Hardscrabble embodies everything a mountainous race should be-there is amazing food/music, even better people and it is all placed in a setting that can't be beat. Additionally, the organizers are sincere in their efforts to support land conservation and to promote youth running. A number of Salida youth benefitted from the youth sponsorship program in 2014 and were able to enjoy the primal feeling of running in the wilderness while being a part of a supportive running community."
