Spanish Peaks Striders: Francisco Ft. Days 10K & 5K
Spend an hour Saturday morning on a 5K fun run/walk or 10K run through La Veta, located in the Cuchara Valley at the base of the Spanish Peaks!
The Two Peaks Fitness – Francisco Fort 5/10K takes place on a scenic course in La Veta, Colorado. It starts on West Francisco St by the Francisco Fort Museum, making its way to CR 450, with a turnaround point for 5K participants. The 5K is an out-and-back run – bring your dog for a bark and walk if you wish! The 10K is a loop. 10K runners continue to CR 440 and then CR 430, turning onto Aspen Street and then turning left on West Francisco Street to return to the starting point.
The event is held during Francisco Fort Day – held in the shadow of the majestic Spanish Peaks (known as the Huajatollas or Wajatoyas), on the grounds of the Francisco Fort Museum. You can “carb up” before the event at the pancake breakfast!
The 10K is part of the 2019 RaBa Cinco Series organized by the Spanish Peaks Striders.
