Break from your every-day routine of running on the treadmill and get outside! Challenge yourself to complete the Blue Burn- a 4.5 mile course around the mountain that takes you from the prairies to the top of the steepest ski trail and back down again. Timed with RFID technology so you can track your progress on our leaderboard all season long! The only time you have to beat is your own.
