2020 Cheyenne Mountain Trail Race 50K, 25K 10K(ish)

An ultra race helping athletes with various

disabilities to enjoy the trails as we do.

Update: Covid-19

Hello Cheyenne Mountain Trail Racers,
Wanted to let you know that our race committee is working to provide you with a safe event. As of now, the race is a go for May 16. We’re all facing some tough challenges in dealing with the coronavirus. It's difficult to make a sound prediction about the near future and how our event and everyone's lives may be impacted

This is our plan:
On April 4, six weeks before our race, we’ll reaccess and make one of two choices based on the best info available:
  • Run as planned on May 16.
  • Postpone to Saturday, October 24. We have this date reserved at Cheyenne Mountain State Park
If we postpone:
  • Your current registration immediately transfers to our Oct. 24 date.
  • You may defer your 2020 entry to 2021 or any future CMTR by e-mailing co-race director Tim Bergsten at tim.bergsten@gmail.com.
  • You may transfer your registration to another runner (you can do this now, if needed) by e-mailing Tim.
  • Following the industry standard, we have a strict no-refund policy. However, considering these unique circumstances, including economic hardships created by the coronavirus, we will offer refunds should you have a need to withdraw.
  • We’re going to freeze current entry fees (50K/$75, 25K/$60, 10K/$45) through September.
It has been our pleasure to host this grassroots event and support our nonprofit partner Achilles Pikes Peak. We’re here to give back, and we appreciate our runners and volunteers who keep that spirit alive.

For now, be safe and be smart. Here is to many beautiful miles ahead!
The Cheyenne Mountain Trail Race committee


The 10th Cheyenne Mountain Trail Race

Plan to join us on May 16th, 2020 for the 10th running of the Cheyenne Mountain Trail Race. Our 50/25/10K and courses include some of the best trail running on the Front Range.

Register Online

The race will benefit Achilles Pikes Peak, a local nonprofit that helps athletes with various disabilities to enjoy the trails and live richer, active lives. Read about Achilles Pikes Peak.

The courses cross grassy meadows and pierce dark stands of timber beneath the granite face of iconic Cheyenne Mountain. The 50K and 25K course includes a “figure eight” layout with the start, finish and drop bag area located near the intersection of the “eight.” (See map below.) The 10K will be challenging but doable by anyone.

New this year: We're proud to announce that we've added Achilles divisions for visually and mobility impaired runners, with recognition for the top three in the 50K, 25K and 10K. Achilles runners will also be eligible for overall race awards. We're asking that all disabled athletes run with a guide. Your guide may run for free, but must sign our waiver prior to race start.

All runners will receive our one-of-a-kind Tech T-shirt. We’ll award prize money for the top three men and women in the 50K and 25K. Race medals for the top three men and women in all three races, plus the masters champions at all three distances.

We will not have age-group awards, as we've chosen to save our resources and donate more to Achilles Pikes Peak.

Bring the family! There is a playground for the kids near the start/finish, and plenty of room to run. The coffee will be ready when you arrive, and we’ll have food for everyone from Roman Villa, one of our running community’s favorite restaurants.

Cheyenne Mountain State Park is a located about five miles south of downtown Colorado Springs.
