Race Information

Coinciding with the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice trail run is arguably the most enjoyable race in the La Sportiva Trail Running Series. Beginning and ending in beautiful Creekside Park in the heart of Beaver Creek, Colorado the Summer Solstice sends runners through and around the resort community. After an ascent through Aspen grooves on appropriately named Aspen Glade trail runners will traverse across Beaver Creek Mountain on Allie’s Way singletrack and descend down the hillside and into Creekside Park. Participants will be treated to amazing alpine views and fully stocked aid stations along the way. This right of Summer is not to be missed.

See race schedule below for start times


After Party and Prizes

Following the race, racers are invited to enjoy food provided by a local restaurant and live entertainment in Creekside Park. Awards will be presented to the top three men and top three women in each age category for 10K runners. Prizes will also be given to the top three men and top three women in the Open, Amatuer and Masters 5k categories.
