2010 Imogene Pass Run Start

Trail running near Ouray is very popular during the summer and fall.  Numerous trails exist from town that treat runners to delightful overlooks, long ridges, aspen forests and steep ascents.  Runners interested in well marked trails with variable terrain need only look to some simple loop runs.  The Portland Trail combined with a hike to a scenic overlook makes a great loop while others such as the Silver Shield trail can be either out and back or combined with the Oak Creek trail and/or the Twin Peaks trail for longer stretches.  For more information on hiking trails see Ouray Colorado Hiking Trails.  You can purchase a trail map at the hotel or directly from the Ouray Trails Group.

Confirmed Races for 2020

Serious Trail Running Events in Ouray

If trail running is your idea of entertainment, Ouray is home to two serious trail running events. 

The Imogene Pass Run will occur on September 12, 2020.  The Imogene Pass Run is a 17 mile run from Ouray to Telluride up and over Imogene Pass which tops out over 13,000 feet.  This run is not for the untrained or faint of heart and draws 1500 runners yearly.  

The Hard Rock 100 is in mid July each year and this ultra trail run connects the towns of Telluride, Silverton, Lake City and Ouray.  In 48 hours or less, runners go up and over a 14er (Handies Peak) and put 100 miles under their feet.  Needless to say, this one is for the truly fit.

In light of the order from the Ouray County Public Health Agency, and most recently the “Stay ay Home” Order from the Governor of Colorado, the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs will be closed until May 1, 2020. At that time, we will re-evaluate based upon County and State reccomendations.

Any reservation booked between March 20 and April 30, 2020 will be cancelled at this time with no penalties.

We look forward to welcoming all of you back soon. Stay healthy and safe!
