COVID-19 Response

The Emerald Mountain Epic 2020 - presented by Honey Stinger, August 8+9, is currently scheduled to take place as planned. The safety of our participants, vendors, and volunteers is our absolute top priority and we are monitoring the developing situation on a daily basis. We are following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) guidelines and recommendations for gatherings and sporting events.  

Registration is still planned to launch on April 1st at noon. In the event that this race can't occur due to longer-reaching recommendations on large events and gatherings, rest assured that your registration fee will be refunded.   

Our team understands this is an uncertain time and appreciates your patience and support moving forward. We know that this event, and the beautiful trail system it celebrates, is treasured by the local community and visitors alike.  We encourage folks to enjoy getting outside to stay in shape and blow off steam however it makes sense in your current and ever-changing situation!  

We will stay in touch about the status of race as well as posting updates to our website and Instagram/Facebook as we are able.
