The Colorado Trail is hundreds miles of all the best nature that the Centennial State has to offer. Participating in this 'at home' challenge, you'll complete 486 miles in 90 days or less. What a great way to spend a summer at home! Prove the miles to yourself now, and come on out to the Colorado Trail to experience the elevation, color and grandeur at a later date!  The trail is divided into 28 segments.  At the end of each segment you complete virtually (as calculated by your total distance achieved), you'll earn a digital badge that you can share and use to brag about your accomplishments!

During the challenge (June-August) run, jog or walk as many miles as you desire each day.  Log your miles through our online tracker and it will compile your daily miles into a cumulative total and show your progress along our virtual Colorado Trail route!  When you join a TEAM of up to 6, all of your miles are compiled to show total progress.  If your buddy in Vermont hikes 10 miles today while you run 5 miles in Washington, your daily total is 15 miles of progress along the trail!

Earn badges for each segment completed! Here's a sampling of badges you can earn!
