The Cheyenne Mountain Run

Sticker-2_RJPEGOctober 22, 2016 5K and 9M Trial Run

The 2016 race distance will be at least 9 miles and will increase each year as the trail to the top of the mountain is completed. When the trail is completed, this race will provide runners with a new challenging trail race that will be 12-13 miles long with about 3,000 feet of elevation gain and loss.

The 2016 race will start at the Talon trailhead which is located off the Limekiln trailhead parking lot just past the Cheyenne Mountain State Park Visitors Center and entrace fee gate. The race course continues west on Talon, will turn right onto North Talon and right at about 3.3 miles onto the Dixon Trail. The race will continue up the Dixon trail to the turnaround which will be the end of the completed trail at race day. The race will return on the same course back to the Limekiln trailhead. There will be water stops at the Talon/Sundance and North Talon/Dixon trail junctions so that participants will have four water stops. There will not be water at the turnaround on the Dixon trail. Runners will need to cary their water on this section of the race.

The 5K race will start at 10:15 AM and will follow the Talon trail to the Sundance trail junction at about 1.5 miles. The 5K race will turn right onto the Sundance trail and return to the finish at the Limekiln trailhead. This is a loop course with one water stop at the Talon/Sundance junction.

El Paso County Search & Rescue will be out on the race course to provide emergency response.
