Trail running races, fun fundraisers and youth dance performances fill up the schedule this weekend

Trail running race

Let this be the year you get out and trail run. The Dynafit Vail Trail Running Race Series is back and has become THE race series to do in the area due to the iconic routes and experienced organizers who know how to put on a top notch race. The series has been going on for 24 years and the staff has 40 years of combined knowledge to help you reach your fitness goals and have fun.

The Boneyard Boogie race will be held down valley in Eagle. As the snow melts and the trails dry up valley, races will move eastward. The Boneyard Boogie offers a 14K and a 6K option. Both races will start and end at the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink, where there is some construction, so be aware of that. The 14K will start at 9 a.m. and the 6K will begin at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday. Eagle is known for its single track that takes you through the pinyon groves and juniper shrubs and both routes will be predominantly on single track. The elevation gain will be around 1,200-feet for the longer race and 375-feet for the shorter race.

Afterwards, grab a donut from long-time sponsor Northside Coffee & Kitchen and then head to the post-race party at Capitol Public House for awards, prizes and lunch courtesy of the new eatery in Eagle Ranch. This race kicks off the series that runs through mid-September and takes you to trails on Vail, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead and Meadow Mountain near Minturn. Sign up for the series or each race by going to .

To reach this, The Cycle Effect is looking for community support at Saturday’s event. Flannel Feedback will be playing tunes and there will be plenty of prizes given away from The Cycle Effect’s partners like Seagull’s Cycles, Mountain Flow, Inner Light Juice, Fjallraven, Iron Mountain Hot Springs.

Arapahoe Basin is open

Although Copper Mountain and Breckenridge closed last Sunday, Arapahoe Basin has announced that it will stay open until June. Recent snowfall and a base of over 60-inches has allowed The Legend to have one of the longest ski and snowboard seasons in Colorado.

To add to the skiing and riding, A-Basin also knows this time of year is all about the party and is doing its weekly Shakin’ at the Basin concert series on Saturdays. Head to Mountain Goat Plaza from 12:30 to 4 p.m. for DJs and live bands. This week’s band is Earl Nelson and The Company. This band hails from Golden and will be bringing everything from 60s and 70s vibes to southern rock, soul, North Mississippi Hill Country blues and even a little gospel grass, so get ready to dance in your boots.

Also this weekend, A-Basin is hosting Gay-Basin: Ski & Ride with Pride on Saturday and Sunday. There will be ski parades, DJs and a rail jam. If you don’t ski or ride but still want to participate, there will be a foot passenger ticket for $25 so you can travel up on the mountain for the action. For more information, visit .
