“Let’s Run Those Wooden Legs Through The Buzzsaw”
Local time: 5:21 AM
Weaving and rambling across the various steep rolling hills of Jefferson County’s White Ranch Park, the Sawmill Trail Runs serve as the ultimate test for December running. Runners will enjoy a single loop for 27k, or the double loop for 55k. The route uses nearly all of the trails in White Ranch Park and boasts a challenging 4,229′ of elevation gain per loop. We’re serving up December #Adversity at its finest.
The Sawmill Trail Runs quickly became an iconic HPRS Fat Ass starting in the winter of 2013. Trail runners flocked to this event to face adverse weather conditions and overcome difficult terrain. These runners returned year after year, because they found something out there on the Ranch, they glimpsed the fullness of their human potential. To better offer this experience to the trail and ultra community at large, we decided to host the latest calendar ultra in Colorado. While turning the event from a Fat Ass to an Official Race, we wanted to maintain the “Fat Ass feel,” all while allowing our members to gain points towards the Fat Ass Series and encouraging everyone to participate in our Adversity Cup. What will the challenges at White Ranch help you discover about yourself?
