Elk Meadow Trail Race 5k & 10k - July 10
This 5K/10K race leads runners throughout the rolling hills of Elk Meadow Open Space Park. Runners will start on Pioneer trail and head clockwise around the meadow. The first stretch is a steady downhill along highway 74. From there, runners will weave their way up to where they will run through the trees along the foot of the mountain.
The course then shoots runners back out into the meadow to reconnect with Pioneer Trail to the finish line. Participants should meet at the Buchanan Park Recreation Center near the Pioneer Trail head. Download the race map (PDF).
