SNOW MTN RANCH
Trail Running Festival
September 18-19 , 2021
Join us at the YMCA of the Rockies in Granby for the 9th annual Snow Mtn Ranch Trail Running Festival. This year's event is the Season Finale to the Summer Series.
The ERS is planning for this event to be back to a 2 day festival which will host 5 different trail races over the 2 days. Races will include a Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and 50K (Individual or team), and Twilight 5K.
Make a weekend of it... Challenge yourself with our popular "Moosehead Challenge" and complete the 50K and Half Marathon over the weekend. If not ready for that we also offer our "Baby Moose Challenge", which is the Half Marathon and 10K challenge.
Regardless of distance... these courses keep all runners surrounded by the changing colors, rolling hills, and picturesque views, making this location and courses still the "Most Beautiful ERS Course".
Due to continued Covid guidelines, restrictions on participation numbers may apply. We will not know these numbers until the YMCA releases its special event guidelines to us in January 2021
