About the event
Run the Hawk Trail Runs is back for its second year. With a 3, 6, and 12 hour ultra endurance challenge, team relay challenge and 1.5Mile fun run at the historic Blackhawk Ski Club, this event has something for everyone. The bar was set very high in 2022 and we learned the challenge is for no faint of heart. Do you have what it takes to take on The Hawk?****This years start line and day of packet pick up has moved to the base of the west hill by the biathlon range. From the west chalet parking lot, walk the tow rope path down the hill. You will be able to hear and see the excitement from the lot. The west chalet will be open for restrooms if needed. If you are dropping equipment for a crew or team tent, please use the east entrance and drive to the base of the hill where there will be a tent drop zone.*****
The Endurance Challenge
The goal of the 3, 6 and 12 hour challenge (individual and team relay) is to complete as many laps around the 2.10 mile course as possible in the designated time. We have a variety of features along the course, including a ski hill, majestic 70 foot pines, and a nice flat, creek side path with amazing views. We would be amiss if we didn't mention you will run along some of the nicest bike trails in the area and under the iconic 60 meter ski jump. There is also a natural spring pool with a rope swing at the bottom of the switchbacks that you can jump in if you need to cool off.
Team relay options are also available for the 3, 6 and 12 hour challenges with teams of 2-4 people. Set up basecamp and enjoy the day running and bonding with friends.
Trail Mix Fun Run
New to trail running or not quite ready for a multi-hour trail run? Then The Trail Mix Fun Run is for you. The 1.5 mile course hits all the highlights of the ski hill but with only one of the hill climbs. Enjoy 1 lap or 5, its up to you. This event is all about getting back to the roots of trail running and just being with people and playing in the dirt.
Kids 12 and under run for $5.
