The Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run(R) is the premier race of Colorado Springs. Running through spectacular Garden of the Gods Park, each of the race courses start at the main entrance to the park. The courses also share a common finish in historic Rock Ledge Ranch where the post-race party begins. Food, beer, music, and vendors surrounded by the beauty of the Ranch and the Garden give runners and their families and friends a place to stay and enjoy an amazing post-race experience.
The Garden of the Gods Park provides a spectacular setting and physically demanding courses. Competition in every age-group, excellent runner support, prestigious awards and uniquely designed shirts make the Garden of the Gods run the most popular race in Colorado Springs. While any run through the Garden is awe inspiring, the race course is designed to take runners into the heart of what the Garden has to offer, including the most famous rock in the area, Balanced Rock.
As an added benefit, the Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run(R) gives back thousands of dollars to the local community. With the Aid Station Challenge and the addition of the Garden of the Gods Trail race, we are committed to giving back to area high schools as well as to the trails of the Garden of the Gods Park.
The Garden of the Gods 10 Mile/10k/Trail isn't complete without experiencing the post race festivities. Runners, families and friends are encouraged to stay after the race and enjoy music, food and beer! Historic Rock Ledge Ranch provides the perfect setting for this amazing post race experience. Not only is the scenery spectacular with a Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak back drop, our local beer partner, Red Leg Brewery, along with a variety of other food vendors and exhibitors will be happy to serve runners as they cool down after their run.
