If you are looking for one of the best "hill" courses the ERS has to offer, than look no further! You can bet this course will keep your HR high, while you take in the surrounding mountain views and terrain. 

The Black Hawk Trail Half Marathon and 10K is not for the faint of heart, as they say. Both the half marathon and 10K courses see tons of climbing and lots of technical landscape. If you are a runner looking to challenge yourself, then you have come to the right place.

The 8th Annual event is located at Golden Gate Canyon State Park just outside of Black Hawk and Golden, CO. Golden Gate Canyon Sate Park supports over 35 miles of trails on over 12,000 acres, ranging in elevations from 7600'- 10,400'. Runners will enjoy remarkable views across valleys, meadows, and mountain ranges.

Due to permit restrictions we are required to limit this race to 300 Runners Max...

*Registration fees include State Park Entry/Parking Fees

NEW IN 2020: 

  • New 10K Course
  • Half Marathon Course now goes in opposite direction (same course)

The ERS is now 100% Cupless Racing, meaning we supply the aid stations, while the runner supplies their own bottle, hydration pack, or reusable cup. Please plan accordingly.


Due to continued Covid guidelines, restrictions on participation numbers may apply. We will know more about those limitations in January 2021, when the State Park releases its special event permits and guidelines.

What we know currently...

  • All ERS races in 2021 will be planned as a staggered start for each race category
  • Race waves will be set at 25 runners/ wave with a planned increase based on permit guidelines
  • Race Waves will be separated by 5 min
  • We plan to offer a pre-packaged food bag at the conclusion of the event. Which runners will have the option to take for free. All items within these bags will be pre- packaged snack items.
  • Medals will be individually wrapped (when applicable) 
  • Hosting an awards ceremony in the finish line area will be based on current local guidelines at each event
