2018 Dixon Trail Work for The Cheyenne Mountain Run

The Cheyenne Mountain Run on October 20 is expected to go to the top of Cheyenne Mountain and back.  This is dependent on trail work in the spring and summer of 2018, but the current expectation is the Dixon Trail will be clear to the top by race day in 2018.

Description

All things look good for the 2018 race to go to the top of Cheyenne Mountain.  There will be a final push to finish the trail this summer, and by October everything should be clear to make it to the top.  With this completion, this race will provide runners with a new challenging trail race that will be a Half Marathon, with about 3,000 feet of elevation gain and loss.

The 2018 race will start at the  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 top of Cheyenne Mountain.  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 the same water stops going up and coming down the trail.  There will also be water at the top of Cheyenne Mountain.  But runners are also encouraged to carry a water bottle on the course.

The 3 Mile race will start at 10:15 AM and will follow the Talon trail to the Sundance trail junction at about 1.5 miles.  The 3M 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.
