This will be the 2nd annual Quad Rock 50 and 25 mile trail race event. The event start and finish will be hosted at Lory State Park and the majority of the route will be run on Lory Park trails. The 2012 event was a huge success and brought a lot of good PR and new park users to both trail systems. We would like to continue to build and improve upon those successes to help support and highlight the local trail networks, and to help promote Fort Collins as a trail running destination. To that end, our hope is to create an event that is considered among the best ultra-distance races in the Mountain West. We have already received verbal approval for our race date and runner capacity from Lory Park management. Official confirmation of our permit approval from Lory can be provided, if needed.

Our complete race plan with the event schedule and detailed runner traffic projections is included in the attached document.

Estimated Participants: 350   Estimated Spectators: 0
