So your parents say you're too young for even the Half Pint?
If you're not yet a teenager we've got the perfect event to get you hooked on trail running.
To give you a taste of what fun the adults are having running up the ski hill, we'll take you to the top of the gondola and walk you down to the trail so you can run the last 300 m of the course. You get a taste of lactic acid in your legs and the glory of a mountain top finish line.
The second day is, possibly, your biggest challenge, pushing your running to new lengths. We'll set out a 3 km course that hits some of the most beautiful riverside trail in Golden and gives you lots of opportunity for high-fives and the sweet feeling of the finish.
Isn't it all trail play? The course for the final day is going to be "flat and fast" so you can stretch out your legs, feel the wind in your hair, and lift the weight from your shoulders. Feel the bliss of finishing your epic weekend with a shorter blast and finish line treats.
