Race Description

The Turkey Springs Showdown is a 10k and a Half Marathon trail race that starts and finishes at the Turkey Springs Guard Station (FS Road 629.B). The race course follows the single track of the Gopher trail, Aspen Run trail, Newt Jack trail, Catamount Trail, and Park Avenue Trail. Both courses are very runnable with some rolling terrain - perfect courses for setting PR's!

Directions to Start/Finish Line

Due to a road closure, these are the directions to follow. From Highway 160, travel north on North Pagosa Blvd for 7.2 miles. Turn left onto Piedra Rd (CR 600) and travel 0.6 miles. The paved road is now a gravel road. Turn left onto Turkey Springs Road (USFS Road 629) and travel 3.25 miles. Your destination will be on the right. Per the USFS, all vehicles must turn around and park on Turkey Springs Road, facing the direction you will leave back to Piedra Road. Signs will be posted on the NO PARKING side.

The Start/Finish Line is a 0.25 mile walk down Road 629.B which is also known as the Guard Station Road. There is NO driving on the Guard Station Road except for race officials.
