Blue Square 5k

With a little over 600 ft in elevation gain, this is the perfect balance of trail running/hill running.   A perfect quad burner for those that want to push the limits or a perfect trail run with unmatched views for the beginner or not-so-competitive runner.  With an aid station and well marked trails, you will find this to be quite possibly the perfect 5k trail race.

Green Circle 5k

While this is the easiest 5k we offer & we are confident that anyone can do it, keep in mind, that we ARE on a ski mountain.  There is no way to avoid hills, but we tried to make it as flat as possible.  As our “flattest” race mostly on wide, groomed trails, this is a great race to test out your speed OR make this your first trail race experience.
