Leave the pavement behind and join us for our third annual Run the Rim 5Mile Trail Run at the Royal Gorge Park Trails! This challenging (yes, there are hills) but beautiful course will take you along a winding single track system that features all the best of the Royal Gorge Region: piñon trees, grand vistas, and views of the Royal Gorge. 

**Please note that this event takes place on natural-surface singletrack trails. There WILL be loose rocks and varied terrain. Those who are not comfortable on uneven surfaces should not participate.**
We'll meet at the Royal Gorge Ranch and Resort parking lot and run directly from the stagin area. (No more bus this year.) The course will follow some of our newest trails, including Made in the Shade and One Track Mind, before returning to the parking / staging area via double-track dirt road (no vehicle traffic). Participants will recieve a commemorative Royal Gorge Trails Silipint cup.
As always, there will not be awards for age group finishers, but there will be a "dash for cash". This allows the first runner in each age group (>18, 19-40, and 40+, male and female) to make a mad dash for a bag o' gold. 
Walkers are welcome on the course, but the nature of the single track trail will not accomodate strollers or chariots.
