The Creede Donkey Dash will abide by the basic rules of burro racing as established by the Western Pack Burro Association. Competitors will run the entire distance, leading their pack burro.
Creede’s Burro race will start and end on Main Street, looping up the historic Bachelor Loop and down the winding West Willow Creek 4×4 road, about 10 miles! Competitors will pass by the Commodore Mines, up the Black Pitch, through the Weaver townsite and past Amethyst Mine (with a view of the Last Chance mine). The course leaves the Bachelor Loop Road at the Midwest Mine site, where runners will climb up-and-over Campbell Mountain and traverse down into the East Willow Creek. Several mines can be seen along this part of the race, including the remnants of the Kentucky Belle, gripping the cliffs hundreds of feet above the road. Finish off the final three miles of the race with a gradual downhill that ends on a cheering Main Street!
Join the annual free-style soapbox derby down Main Street! The race is on Sunday, with multiple heats. The spectacle features more than 15 participants from all age groups. Only 3 rules: rides must steer, brake and stop! (well, and no motors or pedal power – let gravity do the work!).
Pre-register at the Visitor Center or the day of the race at the north end of Main Street. Vehicles should be brought to the staging area in front of the Theatre at the north end of Main Street between 7:30 and 8:30 am for inspection, waivers, and registration.
Hosted by the Brothers Keepers Motorcycle Club, Chapter 19. This is a benefit motorcycle rally. Live Music, Food, and Beverages. Poker Run, Bike Challenges, Slalom, and other events. Proceeds benefit San Luis Valley Veterans.
