Colorado Series Returns to Action at Cheyenne Mountain
After a six month wait, XTERRA Colorado Trail Run Series has returned with its next race in the series. XTERRA Cheyenne Mountain Trail Run will take place this weekend on April 12, 2015, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
XTERRA Cheyenne Mountain will consist of three different courses. There will be a 24-kilometer race that contestants will be eligible to be rewarded points for the Colorado series, a 12-kilometer race and a 5-kilometer race.
Runners will run in Cheyenne Mountain State Park and experience running at 7,200 feet above sea level. Race Director, Victoria Seahorn said, “The course looks great… the forecast is perfect running weather. With a high of 69 and a low of 39 degrees with clear skies.”
What makes this event even more special is the Colorado Trail Run Series partnering with Colorado Young Leaders. Colorado Young Leaders was founded by Nicole Mahobian, a three-time consecutive winner of XTERRA Marathon of Trail Races Half Marathon. Colorado Young Leaders look for opportunities to provide meaningful service and all of the volunteers at the Colorado Trail Run Series will be teenagers from the organization.
