Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run

The Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run®has always had it all—a spectacular setting, a physically demanding course, competition in almost every age-group, excellent runner support, unique awards and great shirts. Simply, this is one of the most beautiful and challenging road race venues anywhere!

And while any run through the Garden is an awesome run, the race course was designed to take you into the heart
of what the Garden has to offer, including the most famous rock in the area—the Balanced Rock.

The course willloop you through the incredible Garden of the Gods Park which lies between Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. The course elevation ranges from 6,210′ up to 6,530′ and back down and up and down and over and around all over again. The race is run primarily on asphalt roads, with the exception of
a 3/4 mile section run on the breathtaking concrete walk-way system (far wider than a simple sidewalk) that winds its way through the heart of the Garden’s
most amazing rock formations. Indeed, the formations are so amazing they bring visitors from around the world!

Clear, dry weather is the norm with temperatures at the start usually is in
the low 60’s. Once in the Garden, the temperature can quickly rise
into the 70’s and low 80’s due to the large rock formations and lack
of shade. There are eight aid stations on the course so you can get water and/or Gatorade at almost every mile.

The race is run under a special use permit from the Parks and Recreation Department which means the
park is closed to vehicles and cyclists so you can enjoy the magnificent
surroundings without concerns for your safety!
However,we must be out of the park by 9:30amto allow visitors and their
vehicles to again have access to the park. Please train accordingly and
plan to complete the race under the 2h30m cut-off. After 9:30am any runners
remaining on the course will be “on their own.”
