Sawmill Trail Runs
The Sawmill Trail Runs; first started as a “Fat Ass” event at White Ranch Open Space in Golden, CO in December 2013. We incorporated it into an official trail race starting in December 2017. In 2021, this event was moved to its new home at Staunton State Park in Pine, CO featuring 50k, 16-Mile, and 8-Mile distance options.
Staunton State Park is a gem within Colorado’s State Park system. From high grassy meadows at 8,100 feet to soaring granite cliffs over 10,000 feet, Staunton State Park’s varied geology, soils, water features, and climate support rare and unexpected plant communities and a rich diversity of wildlife and provide a myriad of outdoor recreation opportunities.
Run Pick of the Month - Slacker Half Marathon
Over 2,000 feet of descent at this downhill half marathon happening June 22, 2024.
Slacker Half Marthon runners follow an exhilarating point to point course from the base of Loveland Ski Area (10,630 ft) to the post-race party in historic Georgetown (8,400 ft).
Participants will receive a Long Sleeve Tech Shirt, a Finisher Medal, and the joy of indulging in one free beer (non-alcoholic option available).
One addition that we really like is that they offer free downloadable race photos.
