The Garden 10Mile, 10k and Trail Race is a spectacular series of races through the heart of Garden of the Gods and designed to take runners along one of the most beautiful and challenging courses anywhere. New addition for 2021, a scenic and challenging 10k Trail course!
The Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run® has always had it all—a spectacular setting, a physically demanding course, competition in almost every age-group, excellent runner support, unique awards and great shirts. Simply put, this is one of the most beautiful and challenging road race venues anywhere! And NEW for 2021, we've added a 10k Trail Race with the same beauty and challenges that the road courses have to offer.
While any run through the Garden is an awesome run, the road course was designed to take you into the heart of what the Garden has to offer, including the most famous rock in the area—the Balanced Rock. The trail course winds through trails of rolling hills and beautiful scenery before merging back with the road runners to the shared finish line.
The road course will loop you through the incredible Garden of the Gods Park which lies between Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. The course elevation ranges from 6,210′ up to 6,530′ and back down and up and down and over and around all over again. The race is run primarily on asphalt roads, with the exception of a 3/4 mile section run on the breathtaking concrete walk-way system (far wider than a simple sidewalk) that winds its way through the heart of the Garden’s most amazing rock formations. Indeed, the formations are so amazing they bring visitors from around the world!
With a start near the Garden of the Gods parks entrance and a finish at nearby Rock Ledge Ranch, the Garden 10Mile, 10k and Trail Race is a quintessential event for Coloradoans, whether native or visitor!
Special for 2021, the race is part of the City of Colorado Springs's sesquicentennial celebration!
