Starting at 801 Front Loop, this 13.1-mile looping course brings runners along the Arkansas River Trail, Whipple Trail, and Bridge to Bridge Trail before reaching the historic Colorado Midland RR Grade. 

It’s then out on Broken Boyfriend Trail before taking a turn onto Camp Elevation Trail that takes runners toward the Collegiate Peaks Scenic Overlook. Here, it’s a turnaround to head back toward the finish line.

Runners will take the Django Trail followed by the Midland Trail, all before reaching the finish line back where it all began.
