Steen, a Five Points Jazz artist, and his band strive to preserve the sounds of "five points jazz" and Denver's thriving jazz community.

Local players kept things cooking, and soon enough the Five Points sound emerged, a brand of jazz characterized by red-hot swing and boundless joie de vivre.

CC Burro Racing Series – Run both races!

Do you feel energetic and ready to keep going after Georgetown’s Race? Then gear up your burro and run the Idaho Springs race too! WIN both races with the same burro for your chance to win “Red Tail’s Miner Challenge Trophy”!

---

Did you know? The Burro is the Colorado State Animal and that Pack Burro Racing is the only sport indigenous to the State of Colorado? It has its roots in the State’s mining heritage. In the early days of the mining industry, miners would take burros, which is the Spanish word for donkey, through the mountains of Colorado in their search for gold. Because the burros were carrying supplies, the miners could not ride the animal and so they would walk, leading the donkey. The burro races commemorate these men and their burros.

Format: In a typical burro race, a runner and a burro race complete a prescribed course together, with the runner leading the burro on a rope. Riding the burro is not allowed. In fact, the human may carry the burro, but the burro may not carry the human. The burro must be on a lead rope, which is limited to 15 feet. Runners must maintain control of their animals at all times. Burros must also carry a pack saddle with 33 pounds of traditional mining gear, including a pick, gold pan, and a shovel. Runners may also include other gear in their saddles, such as windbreakers, water, food, etc, but the surplus gear cannot be counted in the 33 pounds. Cruelty to the burro is prohibited and racing officials have the right to hold any burro for 30 minutes following the race for an inspection by a veterinarian.

Lore: There are two legends concerning the beginning of these burro races. The first states that the races began when two miners found gold and had to race back to the claims office. Because they could not ride the burros the miners were forced to run, leading the burros. The second legend is somewhat vague but concerns a few drunken miners at a bar in Leadville, Colorado.

Location

Highway 103, Idaho Springs

Details

June 25, 2023 - Mt. Evans Ascent Race @ 5:00 am - 3:00 pm
Details here www.racingunderground.com/mtevans

Although the air will be noticeably thin at the starting line, Echo Lake’s 10,600 feet of elevation is just the beginning. The climb totals nearly 4,000 vertical feet – much of it above treeline – as you make your way 14.5 miles to the finish line located at the summit of one of the most recognizable peaks on Denver’s mountain skyline – 14,264 foot Mt. Evans.

Spectators will include Bighorn Sheep, Marmots, and Mountain Goats – maybe even a few people!!!

ROAD CLOSURE:

For runner safety, the Mt. Evans Road will be closed to vehicular traffic during the event. This includes spectators. The road will be closed on the evening of Saturday, and the road will reopen once we reach the finish line cutoff at 11am on Sunday. Spectators are not allowed to camp on the mountain. Any spectators who attempt to camp along the course will cause their runner to be disqualified from the race.

DATE & TIME:

The Race will start promptly at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday. Summit Bags must be loaded into truck by 6:00 a.m. Additional information on the event will be emailed to competitors approximately 1 week prior to the event.

PACKET PICK-UP:

Race Morning Packet Pick-Up will be available at the start line on race morning starting at 5:00am. A PHOTO ID is REQUIRED to pick up your packet, and only you can pick up your race number – no exceptions. You will receive your bib number, participant goody bag, race shirt, and timing chip in your racer packet. No bib transfers will be allowed on race morning.

Early Packet Pick-Up will be available from noon until 6:30pm on Thursday at Runners Roost Lakewood. A PHOTO ID is REQUIRED to pick up your packet, and only you can pick up your race number – no exceptions. You will receive your bib number, participant goody bag, race shirt, and timing chip in your racer packet.

WEATHER:

Mt. Evans has weather of its own, and no forecast seems to be able to nail down exactly what you’ll see at the summit. This forecast, however, should give you an idea what to expect on Mt. Evans. Generally, mornings are nice, with any stormy weather moving in during the afternoon hours. Of course, weather on the mountain can pull some surprises!

BENEFICIARIES:

A portion of every entry will be donated to Alpine Rescue. They will be providing on-course support during the Mt. Evans Ascent, and volunteer year-round support to the community. You may also make an additional donation to Alpine Rescue when you register!

Devil of the Divide Ultra 50k/50m

Time

8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM

Details

September 9, 2023 - Devil of the Divide Ultra 50k/50m

We are pleased to present one of the most beautiful and challenging trail racing events in the state of Colorado with breathtaking (literally and figuratively) views of Clear Creek County and the Continental Divide. Participants will reach a top altitude over 13,000 feet.

The 50K course climbs over 6500 feet. Due to the difficulty and remoteness of this race, prior ultra running experience is required.

The 22K course follows the first part of the 50K, making it one of the toughest half-marathons in the state, with 3400′ of climbing, reaching an altitude of 13,200′. The 22K course is not recommended for novice trail runners. It is a tough course at high altitude.

Cut-off times are enforced for both options.

For for more information, please visit www.devilonthedivideultra.com or contact Stacey Todd at devilonthedivide@gmail.com
