Elk Run 5k Course Map

We Are Back!

2021 Emma Coburn's Elk Run 5k is back...and this time in person! 

After 2 years of virtual racing, we’re thrilled to come back together again! Participants will receive the ultimate swag bag - the highly coveted Official Elk Run Hat (only available if you register, not for purchase), race bib, and much much more.

We will host our 5k race in Crested Butte, CO on September 25th, 2021 but if you can’t make it to run in person with us, you can still sign up to participate in the Virtual Elk Run 5k. Best of both worlds! In-person with us in Crested Butte or Virtually, you can still participate and help us raise money for a great cause!

In person race: 10am on September 25, 2021 in Crested Butte, CO at 3rd & Elk.
