(D) Extend the Fun Run Weekend to allow Shorter Distance Runners the Option to Start on Friday April 16, 2021
(E) Allow Shorter Distance Runners the Option to run a few miles down the Santa Fe Trail to reduce Course Loop Congestion
(F) Allow Runners currently Registered for the 24 Hours of Palmer Lake Fun Run to defer their Event Registration Fees until 2022
The 24 Hours Of Palmer Lake Fun Run may look a little different in Calendar Year 2021 but WE CAN DO THIS! Let’s have a Fun Run, Be Safe, and Be Courteous/Kind/Respectful to other Runners, Spectators, and the Local Community.
Please stay tuned for further Event Updates…

24 Hours Of Palmer Lake Fun Run
How many laps can you Run, Walk, or Crawl around the Palmer Lake Loop in 24 Hours? Come join the Sasquatch Running Company and find out as we host the 7th Annual “24 Hours Of Palmer Lake Fun Run” on April 17, 2021 (Saturday)/April 18, 2021 (Sunday) at the Palmer Lake Regional Recreation Area in beautiful Palmer Lake, Colorado! This Tiny Little Course (Loop) sits on top of the Palmer Divide at an Elevation of 7,240 Feet and measures a mighty 0.82 Miles in Distance. The Course may be Tiny Little but Mother Nature will try her best to disrupt your Running Journey by throwing Sunshine, Warmth, Wind, Rain, Sleet, Snow, or Bitter Cold Temperatures at you during the course of 24 Hours!
The 24 Hours Of Palmer Lake is a FUN RUN event so you do not have to run the entire 24 Hours! Come out with the Kids and run a few laps around the lake, go home, take a nap, and come back later in the afternoon for a few more “Miles of Fun” if you wish! Bring a tent, pack a lunch, and just have a fun time enjoying a beautiful weekend in Palmer Lake, Colorado!
