Race Description

You are invited to celebrate the holiday season by joining us in the Santa Sprint 5k. Runners, walkers, and well behaved (leashed) dogs are encouraged to participate in what we plan to make an annual tradition for our community. This event will benefit the Banning Lewis Ranch Academy Foundation, with proceeds going towards the Banning Lewis Preparatory Academy capital campaign.

ALSO, do you hate running?  Introducing the .5k for the rest of us.  If you are trying to convert that it is .3 miles or 547 yards.  You also get a donut for fuel.

Course Information:  The Santa Sprint 5k will offer runners, walkers, and well behaved dogs a beautiful course that winds through the Banning Lewis Ranch community located on the north east side of Colorado Springs. You will be dazzled with some of the most spectacular views of Pikes Peak along the route. The race will kick off in the open field directly to the south of the Banning Lewis Ranch Academy facility (7094 Cottonwood Tree Drive).
