These races take place starting at the Douglas County East/West trailhead at Rocky Heights Middle School and runs along the E/W trail to the beautiful HRCA Backcountry Wilderness Area, Wildcat Mountain trail system. Offering runners spectacular views along the way, the highlight of this run is the Wildcat Mountain Trail section on the 10 mile course which takes runners to a beautiful bluff overlooking the entire Front Range! The 2017 Wildcat Trail Races are proudly presented by Brain Balance of Highlands Ranch!

New this year- Kids Trail Races! Our goal is to create a safe and fun environment for all to enjoy trail running, and this is the perfect way to introduce your little one to trail running. Only $5 for all kids and every kid gets a finisher medal! (0-12 years old, no shirt included)
In an effort to reduce the amount of garbage we are bringing into the Backcountry, starting this year the Wildcat Trail Races will be completely Cupless on course. After seeing the thousands of little cups we went through last year, we feel strongly that this is the best decision for the environment. We will give you a high quality, 6oz handheld bottle (pictured below, hand strap is on the back) you can use during the race (and in the future!!), and individuals who already have hydration systems are encouraged to use them! We will still hav aid stations, with tons of water and nuun hydration... we just won't have paper cups. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email Don Reichelt, race director, at email@example.com
THIS RACE WILL BE LIMITED FOR BOTH THE 10K AND THE 10MILE RACE SO PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE!
