Get your Boogie on: Running series starts May 15
Boneyard Boogie starts summer races
The 2021 Vail Recreation District trail running season gets underway on May 15 at 9 a.m. with the Dynafit Boneyard Boogie 13K Trail Run.
This race, presented by and taking place in Eagle, is the first event in the 2021 Dynafit Vail Trail Running Series.
The Dynafit Boneyard Boogie takes runners on a 13K scamper through pinyon groves and juniper shrubs on some of Eagle’s most scenic singletrack. The majority of the course takes place on singletrack with some doubletrack sections and a short jaunt down a paved bike path, with an elevation gain of approximately 1,400 feet reaching a maximum elevation of 7,650 feet. The Boneyard Boogie will be a loop course, starting and finishing at the Eagle Pool & Ice Rink.
Racers can pick up their race bibs or register in person on May 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Peak Performance in Edwards.
Race day registration (space permitting) and bib pickup will begin at 7:45 at the Eagle Pool & Ice Rink. The race will kick off at 9 a.m. with wave start times announced closer to race day.
Racer parking will be available in the dirt lot adjacent to the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink. Participants are encouraged to carpool to the race start as parking is limited.
Racers can pick up their custom race T-shirt and delicious Northside Kitchen donuts when exiting the race finish. Every racer is automatically entered to win raffle prizes from our sponsors; raffle winner prizes will be given out at the race area as racers finish. An awards ceremony will also take place at the race finish, and a post-event celebration will be held at the Boneyard restaurant in Eagle Ranch.
All race participants and spectators will be expected to follow current Eagle County Public Health COVID-19 protocols. Race participation is capped, and runners will begin in wave starts.
