Will I have time to look around the park? Yes! Your race fee includes entry to the historic Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, and you will have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful park and the country's highest suspension bridge. While we (and the Bridge) can't be certain of what else will be open at that time, your admission allows you to peruse the grounds until closing.
Remember that family members of race participants receive a $10 discount on the entrance fee into the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park!
Do you allow strollers on the course? We encourage strollers and chariots on the 5K/10K races. Due to the steep terrain on the 1/2 marathon course, we are not permitting strollers and chariots. Safety for all participants is our primary concern. If you are pushing a stroller or chariot for the 5K or 10K course, remember that the first .7 miles of the course is a hill, so be prepared. The course consists of both paved and unpaved dirt roads, so please plan your stroller choice accordingly. But don't forget to enter the kids in the Toddler Trot!
Will you cancel for inclement weather? We run rain or shine! The only event that may be subject to cancelation is our trail run. We want to protect our trails from damage if they should become muddy. The weather at the Royal Gorge is unpredictable and may change quickly. We will make every effort to accommodate any weather that we encounter. This race is a fundraiser for Starpoint and we cannot offer refunds.
Are dogs allowed in the race?
Yes! The Royal Gorge Bridge (and also the surrounding public park) is happy to welcome your furry friends. (Dogs are not, however, allowed in buildings or restaurants.) Please remember that dogs must be leashed at all times and you MUST clean up after your pet (but you already knew that). We will have dog bandanas to hand out. Dogs need swag, too! The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park has five kennels facility that can be utilized free of charge. Check their website for more information!
