The Evergreen Town Race is a benefit for the Alpine Rescue Team in Evergreen, Colorado. The race is one of the most fun races in Colorado. Mostly downhill with amazing views of the rockies and the Colorado foothills. This year’s race is on Sunday, August 5, 2007. The 5k and 10k races both start up Upper Bear Creek and gently wind downhill to the finish at the Evergreen Lake House, which is a part of Evergreen Parks and Rec. This is one of the fastest and most scenic races in Colorado.
Both the 5K and 10K courses wind gradually down Upper Bear Creek, finishing near Evergreen Lake, and treating participants to one of the most scenic and fastest races in Colorado. In fact, this may be one of the best races you have ever run! The fastest 5K time ever run in Colorado was run on this course: Jason Hubbard 14:07 in 1998.
- $25 ($30 on race day) for the 5K
- $30 ($35 on race day) for the 10K
All race finishers will receive a custom imprinted Evergreen Town Race moisture-wicking, technical running shirt.
The entry fee includes an official number, free transportation to the start, an informal brunch, and music and entertainment. Racers 21 years of age and older may also enjoy Bud Light and O’Doul’s beer.
