Come run or walk among the Ponderosa pines in beautiful Black Forest, and be a part of this important community event designed to benefit survivors of Colorado disasters through the services of He.A.R.T. of Colorado. This challenging 5k course winds through the woods and offers a physical challenge or emotional serenity to all participants. A complimentary Art Expo will greet you at the finish line with entertainment, vendors, demonstrations, and opportunities to give the gift of art to folks who lost their homes in recent fires/floods.
