Over 1100 runners will choose to run a 5Mile or a 5K course through a "picture-perfect" park, running amongst towering red sandtone formations on a paved, hilly course. Garden of the Gods Park, the crown jewel of Colorado Springs' Park System, plays host to this race on a beautiful May morning! In appreciation for using the park, we hope you will consider making a donation to the Garden of the Gods Foundation to keep this "jewel" a truly sparking gem!

A Jewel in the Springs!
