The Blue Moon Trail Run is a fun and challenging local race provided by the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department.

The 3-time run series is offered on the fourth Friday evenings of May, June, and July. In addition to the race series there will be a Reverse Biathlon and Triathlon race offered for May only.

The running races start and finish in Piñon Valley Park in northwest Colorado Springs, but primarily runs within neighboring Ute Valley Park.

The biathlon and triathlon will begin at Pinon Valley Park, continuing onto the trails in Ute Valley Park, onto the bike lanes through the foothill neighborhoods and finishing at Wilson Ranch Pool.

All races include climbs to beautiful vistas, a rock arch, seasonal sunflowers, wonderful post-race performances and kids races for those age 12 and under.
