July 17th – XTERRA Trail Run (5km/10km/20km)
Trail runs in Colorado can be a breathtaking experience in more ways than one, and the XTERRA Beaver Creek Trail Run is no exception. This year’s XTERRA Beaver Creek Trail Run will hit the trails for 5K, 10K and 20K runs through aspen glades, along skyways and singletracks, returning to the base of Beaver Creek Village for the post-race party! There is an elevation gain of approximately 700 feet for the 5K, and 1,300 feet for the 10K. It will follow the same trails as the XTERRA Mountain Championship off-road triathlon.
The 20km race counts as part of the XTERRA Colorado Trail Run Series, so runners can earn valuable points toward a series championship.
