This year, we're virtual BUT the first 1500 to register NOW get priority in 2021.

All the swag for you

All the charitable donations for our local kids!

The 47th Annual Imogene Pass Run scheduled for Saturday September 12, 2020 will now be offered as a Virtual race. The Imogene Pass Run Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel an in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of participants, volunteers and staff along with the small communities of Ouray and Telluride is of the highest priority and hosting an event of this size would not be responsible at this time. We previously postponed the opening of our registration in the hope of finding a way forward and continuing the long tradition of the Imogene Pass Run without changes. However, the scope of this event does not align with current legal regulations. While we are unable to host the in-person event, we are offering the opportunity to participate and run the event virtually, completing the distance at the time and location of your choice. Each participant will receive all the race goodies in the mail and the first 1500 registrations will be invited to priority entry into the 2021 event. Entry fees will pay for the race goodies and help fund the IPR Scholarship program, giving over $25,000 per year to student athletes. The IPR also donates over $30,000 per year to local school running programs, and local charities who support youth athletics as well as the event. The IPR will continue to support these programs. We are deeply sorry that we will not be seeing you in person this year and empathize with your disappointment. Registration for the virtual race will open on July 1st. We hope that you can join us for the Virtual event this year and please remember that the mountain will be there, waiting for you, in 2021.  

Course Info

The Imogene Pass Run (IPR) is a 17.1 mile point-to-point mountain race within the western San Juan mountains of Colorado, run along a route which connects the towns of Ouray (7810 ft.) and Telluride (8750 ft.) by way of 13,114 foot Imogene Pass. The IPR is held on the first Saturday after the Labor Day holiday, at the seasonal transition from late Summer to early Fall. Mountain weather at this time is famously “squirrelly” (rapidly changeable), and participants through the years have encountered a variety of weather conditions ranging from virtually perfect to terrible. This spectrum of weather during the race is in fact part of its lure and mystique. In good weather years the challenge of the mountainous traverse is rewarded by unsurpassed vistas and no small feeling of accomplishment upon crossing the finish line. In bad weather years, the wind, fog, rain and/or snow along the course make the successful arrival in Telluride a virtual rite of passage into the realm of true mountain running. Each participant should keep in mind that the IPR is a mountain run in every sense of the word, and that “The Mountains Don’t Care”. The reality is that despite whatever emotions we may have for the mountains and their environment, they are in fact unfeeling objects and they follow the natural rules of physics which are not always benevolent toward living creatures, great or small. It is up to the participants themselves to be properly prepared for the challenges of this alpine foot journey, fair weather or foul. Despite the enthusiastic volunteer support at intervals along the course, each participant is ultimately responsible for his or her own safety and risk. Except for short pavement stretches at the start and finish and a short trail section immediately below the pass, the IPR is run along a course consisting of normal to 4×4 dirt road. This is a traditional summer travel way between Ouray and Telluride and there may be minor vehicle traffic during the race. A total of six aid stations will be manned during the race (including one at the summit), support personnel will be stationed at critical junctions along the course, and numbered orange traffic cones will be placed at every mile interval from the start to the finish.
