This is a New Year's Day tradition in Colorado Springs.  The race doesn't start till 10 AM, so you can still see in the New Year and be plenty refreshed to tackle the challenging 5K and 10K courses in Palmer Park.  Bring your friends and family and start the New Year with some healthy competition and even better camaraderie.  You won't regret it.

Note: A third race director is Tim Bergsten of PikesPeakSports.us.  (The current web form only allows fields for 2 race directors.  Sorry Tim, ladies first when filling out those fields.)

The streets and trails of downtown Colorado Springs are not exactly the "Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field" but on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 1) more than 1,000 runners will race for paydirt there in the Fourth Annual Super Half Marathon and Game Day 5K.  The Woodland Park High School's band, ensemble and cheerleaders will also be there to ramp up the festivities.

This event is a fundraiser for the Pikes Peak Road Runners and PikesPeakSports.us, organizations that work to promote running, racing and...

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. The emphasis is on cross country running, using the trails and obstacles that are offered at each race venue. The courses are challenging, and sometimes a bit crazy, but the atmosphere is filled with smiles and fun. By design, these are not your ordinary 5K or 10K races.

In 2015, the order of the courses has changed.  The series will kickoff with the Bear Creek Park course of 4.5M.  Then two weeks later runners will get to take a dip in Monument...

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.

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.,...
