About Valkyrie Trail Race

Taking place in Cheyenne Mountain State Park in southern Colorado Springs, Valkyrie Trail Race is a must-do ladies' event. With distances from 4 mile to 50k, this event is an amazing women's trail celebration! Beginning on crushed limestone in the meadow, trails then take runners onto singletrack and upwards towards Cheyenne Mountain.  After descending the Talon Trail, runners then traverse technical rocky paths through the cool pine trees of the lower park. Springtime in Colorado Springs is the perfect time to experience these beautiful trails!
