Estes Park Races

Estes Park is a training, running and racing paradise. With thin air and high elevation, the challenge for athletes intensifies, as does the thrill. The breathtaking mountain views and alpine inspiration keep spirits high, even during the longest of races. Whether you are looking to run the trails or are going for endurance, the Estes Park Summer Race Series will challenge you, leaving you in awe of both yourself and your surroundings.

June 20 & 21, 2015: Estes Park Marathon, Marathon Relay, 1/2 Marathon, 10K, 5K & Kids Fun Run

Open meadows. Forested and stream-lined residential property. Looming, spectacular peaks stretching toward the sky. All are integral to the Estes Park Marathon course that is known for having the highest paved route in the nation. Bond Park in downtown Estes Park is the perfect spot for kid's activities and races.

The challenging USA Track & Field (USATF)-recognized race is held on Sunday. As part of this event, there is a race for every member of the family: a full marathon, a half marathon, a 10K and 5K combined into the same race day. Walkers are encouraged to join the fun. And everybody's off the course in seven hours. The Kid's Fun Run and family fun festival takes place on Saturday.

Elkhorn Dash Fun Run

A one mile, quick dash down the main street of Estes Park, Elkhorn Ave! Perfect for those looking to clock-in their personal best for a mile or families with wee-ones in strollers who want to take it a bit slower. Starting promptly at 7:45am near the Elkhorn Lodge on West Elkhorn Ave, have fun during this quick and scenic dash! Additional details at eparathon.org
