Upcoming Unconvetional Races

Running is one of the best ways to get into or stay in shape… it requires minimal equipment, it’s free, and you can do it anywhere. I love a good race to train for, but if running down a road for 13.1 or 26.2 miles doesn’t appeal to you, then you might want to consider a less conventional race. Here is a list of some of the upcoming fun runs and races along the Front Range anyone is sure to enjoy.

The Flaming Foliage Relay:

Enjoy single track trails and fall colors with 11 of your closest friends as you tackle an overnight 170 mile route from Idaho Springs to Buena Vista. During this adventure race style event you will run several times, you will finish with loads of stories, you will need sleep and a massage, and you won’t be able to wait for the next relay!
