Run the Ranch

For the 5th year running and benefiting the Heart J organization, we are bringing back an amazing and beautiful trail race to Loveland, CO. You will have 6 distances to choose from.

Come run on beautiful trails on private land at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch. The views alone are to die for! There are different terrains throughout the course, something to challenge everyone.

We will have a 5K and 10K. On Saturday there will be a 4hr, 6hr, 12hr, and 12hr 4-person relay timed races. There is a ranch access fee that each person coming onto the ranch needs to purchase. $5/person per day. EVERYONE running will be provided a meal ticket. You can purchase an extra meal ticket for any friends or family coming, OR if you want two meals.
