Lucky Lyons!

St. Patrick’s Day Run
Lyons, CO
March 14, 2020


Terrible news! In the best interest of health and safety the town of Lyons has just cancelled tomorrow’s event. The mayor is issuing an emergency declaration limiting group gatherings to ten people. Our event is fairly small and we had no prior indication that this might happen. We were completely planned and prepped to go. The shopping was done and we were heading out to set up the course when we received the news. We understand that the town is doing this with the best of intentions and we support them in what we’re sure is a very difficult decision.
We give these events our heart and soul and it is very upsetting to cancel on you all. As we have been saying all along, we believe this type of activity is essential to your well being. Don’t let the cancellation of this event deter you from enjoying the outdoors. Get out on your own!
We are already working with the town on our reschedule date and we’ll get back to you as soon as we know more. We’ll still be at Shoe’s & Brews tonight if you’d like to grab your swag bag. Please feel free to contact us anytime. Thanks so much.

Course

Course
The courses are beautiful and rolling throughout the foothills surrounding Lyons CO. They include paved paths, gravel and dirt sections. You’ll get a little bit of everything!
Aid Stations
Aid Stations will be stocked with water for the 5K. The 10K will have water, Tailwind sports drink, and salty and sweet snacks.
5K Course:
Runners head out from Bohn Park on gravel paths towards the open space trails. This becomes a dirt road (watch for mud after rainy spring days) and at one mile there will be an aid station. From here the course heads west toward the Picture Rock trailhead. Here runners will turn around and travel back towards the aid station and take a right into the neighborhood. After a section on the neighborhood roads you’ll enter the scenic gravel paths and from there head to the finish line.
10K Course:
Runners head out from Bohn Park on gravel paths towards the open space trails. This becomes a dirt road (watch for mud after rainy spring days) and at one mile there will be an aid station. From here the course heads west toward the Picture Rock trailhead. The road becomes a picturesque paved rural road and runners will take a left turn on Old St Vrain towards the turnaround. At 1.6 miles on the pavement, runners will head back toward the aid station. From there it’s back to trails the runners came out on. Pass the aid station then take a right into the neighborhood. After a section on the neighborhood roads you’ll enter the scenic gravel paths and from there head to the finish line.
