Sunday, October 15, 9 AM

"The race's reputation has grown to be the best cross country race in the region!"

-- Bruce Kirschner, Co-Race Director

The Coal Creek Cross Country Challenge is pleased to welcome Boulder Beer as a race sponsor this year. Boulder Beer, Colorado's first microbrewery, is the maker of such fine beers as Singletrack Copper Ale, Hazed & Infused Dry-Hopped Ale, and Buffalo Gold. Stick around and sample Boulder Beer after the race!

This is a CMRA race you don't want to miss!
A true cross country race with dirt trails, farmer's fields, ditches, hills, and even a stream crossing. Full of Surprises!

* Word to the wise: bring an extra pair of shoes or sandals for afterwards.

Directions to 2006 Coal Creek Cross Country Challenge
Directions from Denver and points south:
Take the Boulder Turnpike (Highway 36) northwest toward Boulder. Take the second exit after Broomfield, which is Storage Tech Drive. Make a right off the exit ramp heading north. Continue north to 2nd traffic light. Make a left on to South 96th Street. Continue north through the traffic light on Dillon Road, go about a half mile and make your first left turn on to County Road (just before the railroad overpass). After coming down a short steep hill make your first left turn on to Bella Vista Drive and then your first right turn into the park and parking areas.

Directions from Boulder and points north: Take South Boulder Road east to Main Street, Louisville. Make a right and head south about 1 mile to the 4-way stop at the intersection of Main Street and Pine Street (the Blue Parrot Restaurant is on the SE corner). Make a left onto Pine Street. Make the first right on to Front Street. Continue south about 1/4 mile and make a right turn into the Louisville Community Park and parking.

Race registration and the post-race awards ceremony and prize drawing will be held at the Caranci Pavillion, which is the large picnic structure situated in the north-central area of the park.

The Mapquest Map has not yet been updated, but can get you to the vicinity. S. 96th Street now crosses the Southern Pacific RR tracks. If heading north you will need to turn left on County Road just before the crossing.
