Saturday, August 3, 2013. This race will start with a 5 km run out of Nottingham Park in scenic Avon, Colorado, followed by a 15 km bike ride also starting from the park in Avon and winding through the beautiful neighborhood of Singletree before returning to the park for the last leg of the course, a 3 km run to the finish. The event will wrap up in the park with music, and a silent auction. Bring the family and your friends to spend a beautiful day in the park in Avon while you participate in a fun event that benefits the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, a local charity.
Harry A. Nottingham Park in Avon, Colorado, 81620
The race starts with a 5K run from Nottingham Park along the Eagle River path. The 15 km bike portion takes off from Nottingham Park and circles through the Singletree neighborhood. The hill through the Singletree neighborhood climbs 400' gently over about 1.7 miles. So it could be called a moderate hill. Look at it as a challenge, not a threat. Hop off your bike in Avon's Nottingham Park and finish with a fast 3 km run or walk . Finish while friends, family and fans cheer you on.
