RACE UPDATE- The 4th Annual Palmer Lake Trail Race has moved to Monument, CO due to a double event booking at the Palmer Lake Recreation Area. The race is still scheduled for June 2nd, the Start/ Finish location is the ONLY thing that has been changed. 

The new staging venue allows for MORE PARKING and has an easier access off the 25 freeway, making it easier for runners to get to the event venue on race morning. The Half Marathon course remains the same, while the 10K course will now be run exclusively along the Santa Fe Trail, and not Greenland Open space.

The Half Marathon will still see plenty of WIDE OPEN SPACES through Greenland Open Space, and regardless of distance both courses still offer amazing front range mountain views, while adding in a downhill finish (3 miles of gradual downhill). 

The City of Palmer Lake feels bad about the scheduling conflict, but the ERS is happy to be working with the town of Monument. The ERS would like to give a special thanks to all the individuals that oversee Special Event permitting in Monument, CO, as they were able to push the permit through in a weeks time. We know all the runners will be excited about the new start/ finish location.

*We have adjusted our prices, so that they do NOT include a race shirt. If you would like to take advantage of the shirt option, it is $5, and can be added in the Swag area of your registration.  For those runners adding the shirt option, we ask that you register at least 10 days prior to race day, to be guaranteed of your shirt order. If you are within the 10 day window, we will ask you to pick up your shirt after the race, from the sizes available. We will do our best to accommodate all requests.
