IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES
UPDATE: July 15, 2020
We've got some great news - The 2020 Chase the Moon Endurance Run will be held as scheduled on July 31! The field will be capped and we may not be allowed to offer in-person registration so if you are interested in running this race I would strongly encourage you to get signed up right away. In keeping with recommended CDC, State of Colorado and Douglas County health guidelines, we will be posting an updated race guide next week with modified logistics and safety measures specific for this year’s event.
Looking for more to do right now with all of that good training and fitness you’ve accumulated? Be sure to check out the rest of the Bear Chase Race Series, events. Rock Hawk has been rescheduled for September 5, and of course our Virtual Colorado Trail Challenge that runs through September 3!
Please stay engaged with us through our Facebook page, and we’ll continue to post updates as we receive any new information. Stay healthy and smart with your training, get those nighttime runs in and we'll see you all soon!

Chase The Moon
Chase the Moon is a 12-hour team relay and solo ultramarathon, run overnight under the light of the full moon in the Highlands Ranch Backcountry trail system (we promise some of the best views of the metro and front range). Run as a solo ultrarunner, or get your fellow moon chasing friends for a 3-person or 5-person relay team.
Chase the Moon begins at 7 p.m. on Friday during a beautiful Rocky Mountain sunset, continues through the night beneath the illumination of the full moon, and finishes at 7 a.m. on Saturday as the sun rises in the east to paint the foothills with alpenglow. Don’t miss this unique and incredible running experience. Proceeds of the race benefit the open spaces and trails of Highlands Ranch, ProjectPurple.org, and Conifer's StageDoor Theatre. Voted Best Race Shirt in Competitor Magazine’s “Best Of” runner poll, 2014-2016.
