Rim to Rim 10k/5k Race
October 1, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Support your community while running the most beautiful race in Colorado!
The Rim to Rim Royal Gorge race is a fundraising event for Starpoint services. We are a volunteer-run event that takes great pride in returning 100% of our profit back to Starpoint. Our wonderful sponsors make sure that we have the funds we need to pay for all the amenities that you’d expect at a top-notch race: race packets, snazzy t-shirts, first-rate timing and reporting, organized race logistics, awards, and (of course) post-race snacks, drinks, and entertainment!
Our event staff, including first-aid workers, course volunteers, packet pick-up staff, race committee members, and radio operators all work free of charge. Please join us in giving them a big high-five on the day of the event.
Even if philanthropy isn’t your bag, the Rim to Rim is privileged to hold our race at one of Colorado’s most scenic and awe-inspiring locations – the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park donates the use of their facility and we appreciate their willingness to host us every year! As you run through the revitalized hills near the rim of the Gorge, you will surely be in awe of this beautiful state we call home. And the view from our finish line – located almost 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River, is arguably one of the best rewards for finishing any race, anywhere!
The Rim to Rim is a fabulous destination race. Bring the family along (they all get in for half-price admission on the day of the race!) and have the kids run our free 1/2-mile fun run or Toddler Trot. Then spend the whole day exploring the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park at your leisure. The whole park is at your disposal – including the new gondolas, the historic theater, the stunning visitors center, multiple viewing points, and (coming in Spring of 2015) the new children’s play area! If you dare – try the new Zipline or SkyCoaster (an added pay feature – but worth the adrenaline!)
