Race Times: Sun, Nov 02

5.5M @ 10:30 AM

The Fall Series is a series of four races in four different city and county parks. The courses are run on trails that range from well-maintained to very rocky with exposed tree roots. And if there is water in the park, you will get wet.

This is a progressive series, meaning each run is longer than the previous one. The series scoring is based on cumulative time of all 4 races.

If you run all four races, you will receive a special award and will be eligible for age group and overall awards. If you run one, two or three races, you will get a specially designed t-shirt.

CSPD/Community Service: will be asked to patrol for illegally parked vehicles at all venues.

This is a prediction run with a staggered start format.

When you register, you predict your finish time for the 5K course. The clock is set to the highest predicted finish time of all the runners and set to count down. As the clock reaches the prediction time of each runner, that runner starts running.

With this format, the slower runners start first, followed by the middle of the pack runners, and then finally the fast runners. If everybody predicts their time perfectly, they will finish at the same moment.

Of course, that never happens, as some runners are overly optimistic with their prediction, while others are overly conservative. Once the last runner starts, i.e.,...

There are 3 water stops on the trail. You are encouraged to carry additional fluids. The race normally gets about 100+ participants. If you get lost easily, then this is not the course for you.

No park fees are needed, unless you plan on driving into the park.

At the request of the Forest Service, please use USFS Roads 950 and 951 for parking. (1/4 M walk to the start). There will be minimal parking on the west side of Rampart Range Road. Parking guides will be on-site to direct you to those areas. NO parking will be allowed on the east side of the road.

With a few miles to run in her first marathon, and with various body parts protesting every stride, Brittni Hutton of Colorado Springs needed some affirmation. And there was nobody to turn to except herself.

"I told myself, 'I can do this, I can do this.' That was the only thing, I think, that helped me survive," said Hutton, 24, of Colorado Springs. Twelve hours before the start of the race she had no plans to run the American Discovery Trail Marathon, a 26.2-mile point-to-point race from Palmer Lake to downtown Colorado Springs. The half marathon was a more sensible idea, until her boyfriend, Brandon Birdsong-Johnson, convinced her to run long.
