The Barr Trail Mountain Race is one of the Front Range’s historic summer mountain running events. The 12.6-mile course begins at the Cog Railway Station (6,570 ft) in Manitou Springs, Colorado, ascends Pikes Peak’s iconic Barr Trail to Barr Camp (10,200 ft) before turning, descending and finishing at the Barr Trailhead. Join us July 28th, 2019 for the 19th annual BTMR on “America’s Mountain”!


Guess what we spotted at the Canya Cañon Race & Family Walk in North Cheyenne Cañon Park? A Carson Footwear BTMR headband on none other than the G-Man, Gerald Romero! Canya Cañon is a fundraiser for the Friends of Cheyenne Canon, who keep the trails in working order. Keep up the great work!

The final portions of the Dixon Trail have been completed in Cheyenne Mountain State Park and our friends at The Cheyenne Mountain Run are hosting the 13.6 mile race to the top of Cheyenne Mountain and back this Saturday, October 20th at 10:00am. A 3 mile option will also be run at 10:15am.

It has taken many years but the proceeds raised from this race have single-handedly funded the construction of the last sections of the Dixon Trail and finally the Cheyenne Mountain Run is complete, so come out to celebrate the special occasion.

Register by end-of-day tomorrow before prices increase and be the first to complete this incredible trail!
