Best Annual Running Race (2001)

Evergreen Parks and Rec Races

For the past fifteen years or so, the little town of Evergreen has been staging a series of trail runs that add up to the best race of the year. "People up here are used to running on trails," says Evergreen Rec Superintendent Sharon Martin. "They don't like going down to run on roads." This year, the event kicks off on June 17 with an eight-mile trek at the Mount Falcon Open Space Area. Then, on July 15, there's a 6.2-miler at Alderfer Three Sisters park. The conclusion is a dual run on September 9: an 11.5-mile jog up Bergen Peak for the more macho and a 5.6-mile lope through Elk Meadow for the less robust.
