Heard of Cripple Creek and Victor? Now you can run from one mining city to the other! View the scene of the active mine, the historic mines, Rocky mountains, and small town living as you run across this course. The 10k will bring you from the historic town of Victor to the town with casinos, Cripple Creek. The 5k will have you tour the historic aspects within Cripple Creek town itself, with great views of the mine. Both races will finish at Cripple Creek Victor High School. Booths and post-race food will be at the field for all finishers. Challenge yourself with a hilly course at about 9,500 feet elevation- yet PR with the 10k because goes from a higher elevation start to a lower elevation finish. Best part? Support the high school to get a track facility with a rubberized track.

By May, it should be a perfect 50 degree morning, but Colorado likes to keep us on our toes! Please be ready with jackets, gloves, and hats as needed. Please remember to bring cash for the booths after the race and if you would like to donate any additional funds to the school.

If you are running the 10k, BE SURE TO GET TO THE SCHOOL BY 8am. That is your last chance to get a shuttle to the start line.




Paved roads and pretty hilly, a small section is on a dirt road.


Parking is available at Cresson Elementary, along the streets, and at the high school. Carpooling is encouraged. There will be a shuttle to bring 10k runners to the start line.
