This event features two trail runs, one for the more advance trail runner and a 3 mile run for all to enjoy.
In the Fall of 2018, the Dixon Trail was opened at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado Springs, CO. This trail race will provide runners with a challenging 25k in length. Starting elevation at Limekiln parking lot is 6,060’ and the turn around elevation is approximately 9,200’. Therefore approximately 3,200 gain and loss.
The 25k will start at the Limekiln parking lot, west of the entrance to the state park and entrance fee gate. The racecourse heads west on Talon Trail, turns onto North Talon, at about 3.3 miles turns onto the Dixon Trail (DT). Runners will then follow the DT to the top meadow and will briefly turn onto Mountain Loop Trail and start a counterclockwise loop. This includes an uphill section on a rocky jeep trail to the top and end point of the DT. At the top of the DT at an elevation of 9,200 feet runners will turn left and run downhill for the entire 4.5 miles of the DT and return to the Limekiln Trailhead finish line. .
Due to the safety of both runners and volunteers, CUT-OFF TIME of 10:45 AM to reach the Dixon saddle will be enforced (located 2.5 miles from start of Dixon and 5.8 miles from Start line). The finish line timing station will be closed at 2:30 PM.
The 3 Mile race will start at 9:30 AM and will follow the Talon trail to the Sundance trail junction at about 1.5 miles. The 3M race will turn right onto the Sundance trail and return to the finish at the Limekiln trailhead. This is a loop course with one water stop at the Talon/Sundance junction.
