Emma Crawford Coffin Races

Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce

Emma Crawford  came to Manitou Springs to seek a remedy for her diagnosed tuberculosis. No such cure was found and she died at the tender age of 19. She was in love and engaged at the time of her death. Her last wish was to be buried on the top of Red Mountain. Her fiancée granted her wish with the help of  11 other men who carried her coffin to the top. After years of weather and erosion, her remains were washed down the side of the mountain. It is believed she still haunts Red Mountain today. To honor Emma each year Manitou Springs holds a coffin race and parade. Teams of five create and decorate a coffin that is raced down Main Street. After the race, a parade shows off all of the coffins.
