June 24 - La Sportiva Summer Solstice Trail Run
Please note that registration fees for this race are $38 pre-registration, $43 week-of registration and $50 day-of, proceeds benefiting the Vail Valley Charitable Fund. Fee includes lunch and entertainment for all racers.
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.
