Annual Poudre Trail-athlon Adventure to Begin

The Poudre River Trail Corridor board and the High Plains and Clearview Library Districts are excited to announce the start of the 2021 Poudre River Trail-athlon. This year, families can take part in the Trail-athlon all summer long at their own pace.  With the support of Poudre Trail sponsors, the event is free to all. 

This free event gives participants a way to explore and experience the Poudre River Corridor by engaging in up to ten Trail adventures over the summer. Adventures range from bike and hike discovery challenges, mapping, creativity exercises, learning about rail and trail safety, wildlife observation, and a scavenger hunt, to name a few.  Points are earned for each completed activity that reward participants with event prizes at the end of summer and a chance for random drawings throughout the event.

The Weld Trust is the 2021 sponsor for the Poudre River Trail-athlon Adventure. Each of the ten individual activities is sponsored by local organizations and businesses.

“This free program is a great way for the community to connect to nature and explore the Poudre River Corridor this summer.” Said Trail Manager Bob Hinderaker.

To get started, pick up a Trail-athlon Adventure Kit any time after June 5 from any of four libraries:  in Greeley, visit the Lincoln Park Library (1012 11th St.), Centennial Park Library (2227 23rd Ave.), or Farr Regional Library (1939 61st Ave.). In Windsor, visit the Windsor-Severance Library (720 3rd St.) for a kit. Trail-athlon Kits help participants explore the trail at their own pace, on their own, or with friends and family. 

The Poudre River Trail extends 21 miles along the Cache la Poudre River from the west side of Windsor to the east side of Greeley. Nine trailheads provide safe and convenient access to the trail. To monitor trail conditions and become a friend of the trail, subscribe today at poudretrail.org
