Event Overview

THURSDAY, JUNE 6

6:00 PM

With a start and finish at Nature Valley Mountain Plaza, this event will attract dogs and people of all shapes, sizes, and athletic abilities. Participants are limited to one pooch each and all dogs must stay on a leash for the entire trail run.

NEW for 2024!
We are working to eliminate waste at the GoPro Mountain Games so all on-mountain Aid Stations will be going cupless for 2024. As part of our continued focus on sustainability, participants will receive a free collapsible cup at registration that can be used at all Mountain Games run events. All athletes should be aware of this change and come prepared for all races.
