About Rattler Trail Races

Rattler was created to feature one of Colorado Springs' best city parks, Palmer Park.  Runners will enjoy views of the city and Pikes Peak from the sandstone bluffs, while running all of the best trails the park has to offer! Even though the course does not have much vertical gain, it will test runners with its technical trails. The start and finish line is located at Maizeland and Academy.  Come out and enjoy this amazing trail system, right in the heart of the city!
