Steamboat Running Series
May 4, 2019 - Oct 26, 2019
The Steamboat Springs Running Series has been an integral part of the Steamboat Springs community for 23 years. We are committed to hosting fun, competitive, affordable, family-friendly events for runners and walkers of all ages, types, and abilities. We are a 13 race series with events ranging from flat, fast, road 5k’s to rugged, mountain, ultra marathons. Each race in our series donates a portion of it’s proceeds to a local non-profit in the Yampa Valley.
We’ve built our series around a “no-frills” concept, and put running and community first.

From there, they would race to the summit and fire outlook of Hahns Peak, once an active volcano with an elevation of 10,839 & 360 degree panoramic views like no other. Now it’s time to share this amazing course with all of you.
