Coming in 2014!
The Estes Trail Ascent Trail Running Event Director Conference, presented by The Portland Marathon.
The Conference takes place at the world famous Stanley Hotel. The hotel first opened in 1909, and is possibly best known today for its inspirational role in Stephen King’s novel, ‘The Shining.’ Renowned for its old world charm, The Stanley Hotel boasts spectacular views in every direction, and is less than six miles away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Multiple renovations have restored this 140-guest room hotel to its original grandeur.

The conference and event director college finishes off with a trail race on Saturday, the Estes Trail Ascent Trail Run. We invite you to come and stretch your legs in the mountain air above Estes Park. The race takes place on a trail course on Pole Hill, Estes Park, and covers 5.9 miles with nearly 1900 feet of elevation gain. Starts at 8,500 feet, and rises to over 9,000 feet with inspiring scenic mountain views. The race is organized and presented by the same team that host the Estes Park Marathon, Colorado’s most scenic and inspiring paved marathon! The course combines a hefty wedge of climbing with rolling descents and a final blast down a dirt road that will have your feet rolling faster than they ever have before!
