Description

Join us for our 14th event on Saturday, October 5th. We will have our 14th annual 5K, 3rd annual 8-mile trail race, and our 2nd half marathon TRAIL RACE! All three races offer the unique experience of running over the famed Royal Gorge Bridge, America’s highest suspension bridge. These races will leave you breathless for more than one reason. The views throughout the foothills surrounding the Bridge are stunning.

Often, we see runners forgetting about their best PR, stopping along the course and taking photos of the scenery surrounding them. It is quite the experience. Moreover, this race event supports a special cause. All proceeds from the event go to Starpoint, a local nonprofit organization that offers essential services to two
vulnerable populations, children and their families, and adults with cognitive and physical challenges.

Your registration includes free entrance into the historic Royal Gorge Bridge & Park (on race day). Family members will receive a $10 discount. After the race, we want you to slow down, relax, and take in the unique views that our region has to offer.

All registered runners will receive a 50% discount for the Royal Gorge Route Railroad (good for race
weekend only).

There is a FREE KIDS’ race. All kiddos running the free race will receive a special coupon for the Royal
Gorge Dinosaur Experience (good for one year).

The 5K is stroller friendly. All races are dog friendly, but only if your dog is friendly.

****Please note- do not use your GPS to get you to the race. Refer to the directions on the website.
www.rimtorimroyalgorge.com. A detailed email will be sent to all registrants.

****PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR 10K ROUTE IS DISCONTINUED AND WILL BE RESERVED
AS AN ALTERNATE ROUTE IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT THERE IS INCLEMENT
WEATHER AND THE TRAILS ARE UNRUNNABLE. SHOULD THIS BE THE CASE, WE
WILL EXTEND THE ROUTE TO 8 MILES (DIRT ROAD) AND ALL 8-MILE REGISTRANTS
AND HALF-MARATHON TRAIL RUNNERS CAN RUN THIS ROUTE INSTEAD.
