Horseshoe Gulch 6K/14K

The fourth race in the Summit Trail Running Series, held under a blazing-hot afternoon sun on July 22 in Breckenridge. The courses took racers on a scenic (and demanding) tour of the Horseshoe Gulch area, including portions of Blair Witch, Keystone Ranch Road and the Colorado Trail. It also saw one of the deepest youth fields of the summer, with nearly 40 boys split between the 10- to 12-year-old and 13- to 17-year-old categories. The next race is Aug. 12 at Carter Park.
