Trail running takes the benefits of cardiovascular exercise and combines it with beautiful scenery and vistas. The Steamboat Springs Running Series boasts a variety of trail races that can’t be passed up including the following.
With the focus on the backcountry, the Steamboat Stinger wanders through miles of Routt County forest.

Competing at altitude is the true test for any athlete. With both a 10K and 5K option, this trail race takes you up over Rabbit Ears Pass, and will put your training to the test. Because of the altitude, come to Colorado early to adjust before you attempt it. Take your vacation early and enjoy the many other activities Steamboat Springs has to offer before the race.
