The Pueblo Chieftain and the Southern Colorado Runners welcome you to the 40th Annual Pueblo Chieftain Spring Runoff . Join us for the 2018 edition of Pueblo’s oldest and largest running event. Since 1978, Southern Colorado’s leading newspaper, the Pueblo Chieftain, has supported and sponsored this early springtime road and river trail race. All paid entrants will receive a beautiful, short sleeve tech shirt with a 4 color logo.
We have something for everyone. This year we are offering 4 adult events, 10 mile and 10K runs starting at 8:45AM and a 5K run/walk and a 2 Mile walk only--no running permitted in the walk, starting at 9:00AM. At 10:45AM we have two free youth events, a 50 yard dash for toddlers and a 1.1 mile youth run for Kindergarten up to the 8th grade, the Funner to be a Runner (no-shirt included in the free youth events).
