About This Activity

Race Information

The 10@10 features both 5k and 10k trail running race distances to give everyone the opportunity to get out and race! Both races start at 9 a.m. at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola at Eagle's Nest on Vail Mountain, with both the 5k and 10k races taking place above 9,000 feet of elevation with the high point at nearly 11,000 feet. The average grade of the 10k is 7 percent with an elevation gain of 1,172 feet. Both races finish at Eagle's Nest at the top of the mountain. Online pre-registration: ends at 5pm on Friday, August 22nd. Day-of registration available at the base of the Gondola from 7:30 to 8:30am.

The Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead, which accesses Eagle's Nest, is open for spectators to ride to the top for FREE from 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. Failure to load the gondola by 8:30am will make it so you will not be able to access Eagle's Nest without paying a daily scenic ride ticket for $28. Dogs or other pets are not permitted to load the Gondola. Post-race, the gondola will be free for racers & spectators to download to Lionshead Village.


Racers should park in the LionsHead parking structure where parking is free for the summer.
