The courses are challenging and hilly. The 5K course is entirely on paved roads and is an out-and-back. It's all uphill on the way out, and all downhill on the way back. There is one water stop at the turn-around point.
The 10K course is a combination out-and-back and loop course, and is on paved roads, gravel roads, and dirt trails. The first mile is all uphill, then it is flat to rolling for the next couple of miles. Then there's another uphill stretch for about a mile. The last mile and a half or so are pretty much all downhill. The views on the 10K course are spectacular, with panoramic views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range mountains.
