Paul Mitchell XTERRA Beaver Creek Trail Runs

Trail runs in Colorado can be a breathtaking experience in more ways than one, and the XTERRA Beaver Creek Trail Run is no exception. The course offers scenic views while taking runners along 2,400 feet of climbing in the thin Colorado air. It will also count as part of the XTERRA Colorado Trail Run Series, so 20km runners can earn valuable points toward a series championship.

There will be a 20km, 10K and 5K courses for the whole family to enjoy.

Event t-shirts are guaranteed for all athletes registering by June 30. Walk-ups and registrations after July 1 are not guaranteed a t-shirt. You must be present to receive awards.
