Course description:

The course starts at 7-Eleven just west of Woodmen and Marksheffel and heads south on the trail, turns around at the new fire station and returns to 7-Eleven (Oh, Thank Heaven for 7-Eleven!).

Directions to start:

Race starts and finishes at 7-Eleven, 7718 E. Woodmen Rd., Colorado Springs CO (use this address for GPS navigation).

Access from eastbound and westbound Woodmen: Turn right on Marksheffel and follow directions to parking

Parking:

Please be respectful of the neighboring Woodmen Valley Chapel as they have multiple Easter Sunday services (including one at 8am, the same time we start our race) and they need their parking to be available for their members. Limited parking is available at 7-Eleven, so carpooling is a great idea.

Limited parking is available at 7-Eleven. Limited parking is also available on the NORTH side of the dirt road leading to 7-Eleven. Overflow parking is available at the PRIDE Soccer Complex and buses will transport runners between the PRIDE Soccer Complex and 7-Eleven.

To access the PRIDE Soccer Complex, continue east on Woodmen past Marksheffel and turn south on Mohawk Rd. Click HERE for complete directions to get the the PRIDE Soccer Complex.

Awards info:

Refunds:

Entry fees are non-refundable.

Walkers/Pets:

Walkers: Yes! Our belief is that a 5K is for runners and walkers both. All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have walkers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so no matter where you start, you'll still get your accurate times.

Pets: For the safety of all participants AND pets, no pets are allowed in the race.

Strollers:

In addition to running, we support health, fitness, babies, fun, etc. We'd love to have you! All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have strollers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so everyone, including those with strollers will still get their accurate times. There is no charge for stroller babies (they're not walking or running after all) and they will not get the shirt, goody bag, official times, etc.
