Even before the ski’s and snowboards are stowed, many Steamboat Springs locals are preparing for the summer running season. Road or trail, full or half marathon, recreational or competitive, whatever your running preference the town has something for you. I guess its not that surprising when you think of how many outdoor and athletic oriented companies are based here – Big Agnes, Honey Stinger, Smartwool, PowerICE, and Point 6, just to name a few.

If you are local or if you are thinking of bringing your running shoes on your summer vacation, here’s some events that might pique your interest:

Need some motivation? The Twisted Trails Beer Runs are a great chance to get a run in and enjoy a beer afterwards. Typically the run is about 3 miles on both the core trail and local area trails, depending on conditions. All ability levels are welcome as both a faster pace group and a slow group (including run-walk) set out.
