Our 13th Annual race that benefits the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region. This scenic 5k trail run heads down the Santa Fe Trail and finishes with a lap around Palmer Lake. This "spooky themed" event is sure to be a fun day for everyone! Our Kids Monster Dash Fun Run is for kids 12 and Under and is one lap around Palmer Lake (0.8 miles).
Remember to sign up early to guarantee your cool and creepy shirt for 2021!
Day of registration not guaranteed a shirt that day.
We have decided not to have a virtual race option for the 2021 race series. We are experiencing the same supply chain issues/shortages that are affecting so many organizations, and at this time our concern is having enough t-shirts for those that are planning to run the events on-site.
We truly hope that 2022 is better for all of us and we will be able to have a virtual option offered to all again. Thanks for your understanding!

The first Parking area will be just south of the lake at the Palmer Lake Baseball Diamond. You will be able to use pedestrian bridge over the lake to get to the park and the start/finish area. The 2nd parking area is located on the west side of the lake across the street from O'Malley's. Participants who park here must also use the pedestrian bridge to get to to the start/finish area. DO NOT CROSS THE RAILROAD TRACKS. We have bee told by officials that anyone who crosses the tracks on foot will be ticketed and it is a Federal Crime to do so.
Palmer Lake is a beautiful location are we are happy to be here for our 13th edition. Please understand that there are limited parking options in Palmer Lake so if you can carpool that would be helpful to us all!
