Event Description

Back at the Ranch Trail Races is a weekend run/bike celebration held annually in the fall on a picturesque working ranch in Wolcott, CO. Join us Oct 15-16 for a spectacular course, great food/BBQ & beer, bluegrass music, and true, western hospitality. Run and bike distances for every fitness level. Trail runs on Saturday (10/15) and mountain bike & duathlon races on Sunday (10/16).  Use this page to register for SAT trail runs only.

SAT, 10/15/16:  5 Mile, 10 Mile, 20 Mile, 50K Trail Runs

*To register for SUN mountain bike races and duathlons (bike/run/bike), go to: _______ (link coming soon).

Sat runners and Sun riders & duathloners will race on a scenic 10 mile loop course featuring 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.

The beginning duathloner should register for the 15K bike/run/bike (5m/5m/5m) event. Long distance duathloners should register for the 50K bike/run/bike laps (10m/10m/10m) The truly hardy are invited to compete both days for a multi-day off-road experience.

Race swag (hat or shirt), finisher medal, and post-race meal included with registration. Spectator-friendly course and amenities. Families and friends welcome. Extra meal tickets: $20 adults; $10 children. Onsite camping available for $20 with advance reservation. Nothing fancy, but there are restrooms and a group firepit. Free coffee in the morning! 100% of camping fees go to charity.

Location: 4 Eagle Ranch, Wolcott, CO (see location map).

Parking: Please park in the main parking lot closest to the road and follow the signs to registration (short walk). Proximity parking reserved for ranch lodging guests and activity ticketholders (horseback rides, zip line groups, razor tours, etc.).
