Back at the Ranch Trail Races is a weekend run/bike celebration spanning from 10/10/2015 to 10/11/2015, with trail runs on Saturday (10/10) and mountain bike races on Sunday (10/11). However, each day will include a long distance duathlon event (see below). Use this page to register for SAT trail runs and run/bike/run du.
Runners and bikers will do the same course: a scenic 10 mile loop along dirt roads and single & double track trails through sage brush and open meadows. Some climbs, mostly rolling terrain with 1100’ climb per lap. Course is beginner-friendly---great opportunity for the aspiring ultra runner to complete a 50K (3 laps) and the off-road rider to crush some laps.
And for the duathlon athlete to step up to the 50K distance! Long distance duathloners can choose run/bike/run laps (50K) on Saturday -OR- bike/run/bike laps (50K) on Sunday. Hardy souls can register for the 50K duathlon on both days for a multi-day experience totalling a total, 100K distance. Families and friends welcome.
Spectator-friendly course and amenities. Race shirt, finisher medal and post-race meal included with registration. Extra meal tickets: $20 adults; $10 children. Onsite camping available with advance reservation.
Location: 4 Eagle Ranch, Wolcott, CO (see location map).
