The Stories Trail Runs is a unique winter trail running adventure taking place in Colorado Springs, CO against the breathtaking backdrop of Cheyenne Mountain, and “America’s Mountain” Pike’s Peak, with sweeping views of the Colorado Front Range below.
This event features an amazing community atmosphere made possible by the main staging area/aid station at the start/finish of each loop. The Stories timed events (30-hr, 15-hr, 6-hr) are unique in that rather than repeating loops on the same 1-2 mile track, participants will enjoy multiple loops spread out through Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Timed events are also unique in that runners are challenged with running as many miles as they can or want within their allotted time. The trail 10k and Half Marathon round out the weekend as shorter distance options where runners can still enjoy the communal aspect of HPRS while enjoying a fantastic trail race along select trails within the State Park.
