Palisade’s Riverbend Park presents a perfect location: 95% trail or path running and virtually traffic free. Both races start at Taylor Elementary and head toward the flowing waters of the Colorado River. The 3 miler is an in-and-out course, whereas the 5 miler shows more of the park and river.
The return leg takes advantage of the trails created within the Disc Golf course and run/walk some choice single-track under the shade of huge cottonwoods. Just for kicks, the lone uphill is near the finish and gives participants a short challenge before the finish line. Enjoy refreshments and fresh Palisade peaches courtesy of Talbott Farms.
In addition to the commemorative "Running Peach" t-shirt, racers will receive a free entry to the Palisade Peach Festival in Riverbend Park.
