We are Happy to announce that the Virtual Challenge, 43rd, Pueblo Chieftain Spring Run Off is about to start. We apologize that the “normal” Spring Run Off is not taking place this year because of COVID-19.
The Pueblo Chieftain and the Southern Colorado Runners welcome you to the 43nd Annual Pueblo Chieftain Spring Runoff. Join us for the 2021 edition of Pueblo’s oldest and largest running event. Since 1978 Pueblo Chieftain—Southern Colorado’s leading news paper, has supported and sponsored this yearly springtime race.
We are offering 3 virtual-race-challenges that mirror the same distances we have had prior years: the 5K, 10K, and 10 mile run unfortunately Funner to be a Runner will not be offered. We hope that you take the challenge.
You can use your favorite courses or create a new one. There are course maps available in Run Sign Up of the original race courses that you can use, however that is totally up to you. Also encouraged, is that you encourage others to do the virtue challenge with you.
Care and Share is a great cause and reason for you to enter this event. Partial proceeds collected will be donated to this organization.
Don’t miss out; plan now to join us on Saturday, March 13-28, 2021, for Pueblo’s Premier running event.

Except for a short dog leg, the course is the same as the 10M/10K for approximately 1.2 miles then turns toward the Arkansas River and joins the river trail at about 1.6 miles. It then runs downriver (downhill) back to Dutch Clark Stadium. You can run past Dutch Clark on the trail to simulate the distance of finishing inside Dutch Clark Stadium.

Pueblo is located in the "banana belt" of Colorado. 76% of the days in Pueblo are Sunny, more sunny days than San Diego or Miami. When other areas of Colorado experience snow, Pueblo many times remains dry. That being said, weather in March is unpredictable. We hope for sunny and 60 degrees but it could be snowing. Check the weather forecast; be prepared for snow and cold. Please do your best to provide a quality and safe run and enjoy your virtual run.
