About This Event
Come to the country (Elizabeth, CO) and Run Wild with great people. There are two main objectives for this event: 1) Enjoy a quality 5K that is both fun and challenging, and 2) Raise money to help defray the equipment costs and camping expenses for a local youth group. The youth group will be the support crew for your race.
The 5K race starts and ends near Legacy Academy on Legacy Trail Road. The course winds through the Wild Pointe development and has enough ups and downs and curves to make it interesting, but not so extreme as to make it a pain. The course is out-and-back, so you can see the other racers and give high-5's as you pass by if you feel so inclined. The elevation ranges from 6,600' to 6,800'. The course is stroller friendly. Due to insurance issues, no pets on the course.
Optional "Color Me Wild" lane
We have added a new optional feature to the race this year: "Color Me Wild" lanes. At four points along the course there will be a designated lane for those runners who would like to be showered in colorful powder. Kind of wacky, but also kind of fun. Wear a white T-shirt for the greatest effect.
The color powder is all certified non-toxic and free of any heavy metals. Some Color Runners opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths. Our certified Color Throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by.
Medals will be given to the top 3 overall finishers and top 3 finishers in each age/gender category.
Each registered runner will receive a stylish race T-shirt with the unique Run Wild logo.
