If you are an experienced runner (capable of running at least a 10k), or looking to step up to more technical trails, check out our blue level, or intermediate level runs! Blue level runs are 5-7 miles in length and have more sustained up and downhill portions. Trails feature some rocky and rooty portions, and ascend to elevations close to 9,500’. The views aren’t terrible either! These runs will take place out of North Cheyenne Canon, one of Colorado Springs’ oldest parks.

This tour begins at 7:15 am at our bike shop in Old Colorado City (Colorado Springs). From there will be drive you to the trailhead to bring your guided run.

COMING SOON! GREEN 

Green level runs are the mellowest of the three guided route options we offer. They are best for runners that are new to trail running and are comfortable running at least 4 miles. Routes will be from 4-6 miles and hosted in Garden of the Gods or Ute Valley Park. They are at a lower elevation than our other levels and feature no long ascents or descents. You can expect some rocky terrain, but nothing too technical, but the scenery will be killer!

Approximately 1-2 hours

COMING SOON! BLACK

Pikes Peak or Bust! These advanced rated runs will get you into the subalpine and alpine zones up Pikes Peak or Mount Rosa. If you are capable of running at least 10 miles comfortably and really want a challenge, then look no further! These routes will take you above 11,000-14,000’, have long sustained up and downhill sections, and portions of technical trail. While there is no big drop offs on Pikes Peak, expect a small boulder field and some cold weather, even in the summer. These routes are perfect if you are an ultra runner traveling through on vacation, or training for a high altitude race!
