Colorado’s Run Rabbit Run Trail Races

In addition to being some of the hardest and most competitive ultra-distance trail runs in the U.S., the Run Rabbit Run races in Steamboat Springs, Colo., are also some of the most scenic—due to being held near the colorful peak of fall foliage season in Routt National Forest. The 50- and 100-mile races, sponsored by Altra, offer the most lucrative trail running prize purses in the world with more than $50,000 doled out to top finishers and $12,000 going to the overall men’s and women’s winners in the 100-mile race. Colorado’s Jason Schlarb (18:05) and Spain’s Emma Roca (21:42) were the winners of the 100-mile races, while Timmy Parr (7:43) and Mary Mahoney (9:05) won the 50-mile races. Runners endured chilly temperatures, some cold rain, the effects of running at high altitude and, of course, plenty of sunshine, golden aspen trees and stunning mountain views, too.
