This weekend of mountain trail races is a celebration of the great outdoors, a test of personal stamina, and an opportunity for every competitor to experience the "victory" of finishing their chosen race(s), regardless of distance.

While originally scheduled for Vail, we relocated the Victory Races in 2014 to Parshall, CO at Aspen Canyon Ranch, a private dude ranch in Grand County. This event is low-key and laid back. Delicious post-race food: Western Chili Bar with fixin's on both days--included with paid registration. All other participants and spectators can eat for $15. Served in the spacious Aspen Canyon Lodge overlooking the Williams Fork River. Bring the whole family!

LODGING: Aspen Canyon Ranch offers comfortable cabins as well as overnight camping. To book, call 970-725-3600. Visit their website:

Event details and schedule

Course Description: All events take place on DIRT ROADS & TRAILS. Run will be on double track and single track with two aid stations for the 5 mile and five aid stations for the half marathon. First five miles is hilly and technical with approx 1800 ft of climb. After this challenging beginning, the course turns into flat dirt road for an easy out and back.

Five milers and half marathoners start together at 10 AM on Sat. No cut-off times. Walkers welcome. Handmade awards and prize raffles.
Registration Price Increases: There is a $5 increase on race day.

Western Chili Bar: Post-race meal included for Sat's registered runners. Participants in the free group ride on Sun will need to purchase a meal ticket. $15 per person. Same price for friends and family. Chili Bar available both days.
