Arapahoe Basin Trail Running Series - July 14, August 4 and 18, 2019

A-Basin’s three-race trail running series is a chill way to challenge yourself at a fun, casual, super-high-altitude race through a truly stunning landscape. Runners head to the top of the Pali chair at 12,500 feet via singletrack and dirt road, then traverse the ridgeline via the West Wall before descending back to the base area. Total course distance is about 5 miles. The views and the altitude make this a breathtaking experience worthy of treating oneself to a hearty lunch and bloody Mary post-race in the 6th Alley Bar and Grill. 

Adult single run: $25 (includes 1 free beer!)

Child single run: $15

Adult run + lunch: $40 (includes $20 lunch voucher)

Child run + lunch: $30 (includes $20 lunch voucher)​
