This will be the 7th annual Balarat Trail Run. This year we teamed up with XTERRA and added a 21k for your enjoyment. The race is also part of the Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series.
"The Balarat Trail Run is a TRUE trail race. 95% single track, hilly, rocky, bridges over water crossings, twisty, turny, YUMMY and close to home (Boulder). Which, is very rare in our closely mitigated front range" Lisa Goldsmith (Member of La Sportiva Mountain Running Team).
The Trail Run is a 10k(6 mi.) or 20k(12 mi.) race that takes place at an elevation between 7,000 8,000 ft. The route is 80% on single-track trail and 20% on dirt roads. The course will circle Balarat property and provide scenic vistas of Longs Peak and the Indian Peaks. The trails will be rocky and steep with tough climbs and fast descents. Total elevation gain and loss for runners is approximately 1,200 for the 10k and 2,500 for the 21k. There will be aid stations.
