Course description:

The course may be adjusted from year to year depending on environmental conditions (and weather). We'll announce course modifications here on race day or earlier. Course is mostly behind the Colorado Springs Flea Market. The course starts on streets and parking lots before moving on to a surprise trail network in a shady, always-changing grove. Surface is mostly winding trails. Sometimes the course changes several times the last few weeks before the event due to the changing conditions. This sometimes makes for a challenging race day. We apologize in advance, but hope it's still fun for you.

Parking:

Enter through main entrance and park on the north side of the south parking lot behind the Flea Market buildings. Park near the little blue building, it will be a short walk into the gate and to the start/finish area. To get to the parking area, follow the signs to the Buyers Parking area (far right lane when first entering the Flea Market).


Here's a drawing version of these confusing words:

Awards info:

First, second and third place overall for each gender. Winners get to pick from real cheap prizes.

Refunds:

Entry fees are non-refundable.

Walkers:

Yes! Our belief is that a community run 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.

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. 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. Due to the nature of this course (trails, open fields, bumps, dips, etc.), we don't think the small-wheeled strollers will do too well. The big-wheeled jog strollers should work better. Please check out the course on your own to determine for yourself. (Check in with the Flea Market office first of course).


NOTE: Although the 5K course is technically doable with big-wheeled strollers, many stroller pushers have told us we need to put a note on our website that it's a real struggle. It's a big enoug struggle that most tend to cut out early. And where's the fun in that? We think the Flea Market Mile might work better for big-wheel strollers. Still not too oadvisable for small-wheel strollers because it's half on lawn.
