Please come out and join us for an amazing trail race we're calling Bob's Bash!
“Bob’s Bash” is a true mountain run. This race has all the elements of a great trail run: spectacular views of Pikes Peak at every turn, serious grunts up the East Ridge, speedy single track through aspen meadows, and a tightening spiral up to the 360-degree views up at the high point of the race at the “Gazebo.” This run will thrill and challenge every trail runner who loves a great, but tough, race.
The race is named in memory of Bob Small, the late Associate Director of Pikes Peak Community Foundation. In 2011, Bob, along with local community leader Brian Kates, brainstormed and then designed short, medium, and long courses that will test your determination. Our test group of runners last year simply raved about the course.
Join us for the inaugural race celebrating the pure excitement of a mountain race that will leave you sweating and smiling to the max. After the race please stick around and enjoy a few Bristol Brewing Company beers and some great live music that will allow this to be a true bash!!
