While that post sunset chill in the air has got our brains thinking about snow, our legs and lungs aren’t quite there yet. And since winter is going to be here before we know it, we at Cripple Creek have decided it’s as good a time as any to jumpstart our summer ski training. We decided the best way to do this would be to form a community run club, but not just any run club. This awesome event is so enticing that unless you happen to be going into labor or stuck at jury duty, you just couldn’t miss it. So next Wednesday come run at our Vail shop for the free beer, bbq, and music; but keep coming for your soon to be refound love for the wonderful sport of trail running.

If that first paragraph didn’t already convince you, we are going to throw a big party following our first run to really incentivize you. So after we get our heart rates up we are going to meet back at the shop for fun and friends. All runners will get their first beverage free compliments of Vail Brewing Company. We will be raffling off apparel from Lululemon in addition to our own gear. Live music will be coming on at 7:30 from everyone’s favorite, The Runaway Grooms. And finally, for those of you who get here early enough, we will be grilling up complimentary burgers and sausages from the always delightful Colorado Meat Company.

Our Vail Shop is ready to Party in the name of fitness!

Our first run will be on August 15th, and the series will continue through the last Wednesday in September. We will be leaving the shop at 6:30 with one casual, and one advanced trail running group. After our 30-45 minutes runs we will meet back at the shop for beers and friends. We are obviously stoked for our initial run and party, but we are more excited to bring together the community in the name of skiing fitness! Can’t wait to see you there!
