Event Parking

Parking for the Garden of the Gods 10Mile/10K/Trail race is located at Rock Ledge Ranch, near the start line of the races. As the popularity of this event has grown, so have the challenges for parking. Garden of the Gods main parking lot has one single road for entry and exit. We strongly encourage you to plan ahead and arrive early, be dropped off, or carpool. 


  • Rock Ledge Ranch Parking – Use the main entrance to the park at 30th St. and Gateway Rd. 


This year, we have added a park and shuttle option to get to and from the race. You may park in the lot at Coronado High School,1590 W Fillmore St. From there a Rocky Mountain Ride shuttle will offer a short 7-minute ride to Rock Ledge Ranch at the North 31st St. turnaround (that is the drop-off and pickup location). From there it is about a 2000 ft walk to the race staging area. Shuttles will run continuously between Coronado High School and Rock Ledge Ranch from 5:30am until 11:30am. 


  • Coronado High School Shuttle Parking – Access Coronado High school via I-25, exit 145. 


Other parking options can be found along 31st St. and the surrounding Pleasant Valley neighborhood streets, directly south of the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. Please be respectful of neighborhood residents, avoid blocking driveways and sidewalks.


  • Neighborhood Street Parking – Access this area via 31st St. This area is a nice warmup jog or walk to the start area.
  • Runner Drop Off – North 31st St. Turnaround – Access via northbound 31st St.
The parking option at Howbert Elementary School is not available this year due to construction. 

Please carpool and arrive early to alleviate traffic and parking congestion!
