COVID19 Update 

We continue to monitor regulations and recommendations regarding group gatherings during these unprecedented times. We are working with our local permitting agencies as well as following guidance from Summit County Public Health. The health and safety of our race participants, staff, volunteers, and the Frisco community is our top priority. We will have a final decision made regarding the 2021 Run the Rockies trail races on May 14, 2021.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as you wait for a decision regarding the Run the Rockies trail races.
