Congrats to Hardscrabble participants

Our fifth Hardscrabble Mountain Trail Run was a day to remember thanks to our runners and walkers, the friends and family who came out to Bear Basin Ranch to cheer them on, our wonderful volunteers and our generous sponsors.



More than 220 people, including 39 kids, tackled the scenic, challenging course on a day tailor-made for running. Check out our complete race results, and check out our race-day photos.

We are grateful to all who made the Hardscrabble Run possible. You help protect land, water and wildlife in southern Colorado while there is still time.

Don't miss this very special event in 2018!

  • "The Hood Family placed a conservation easement on our ranch because it gave us a chance to preserve the land as undeveloped property while allowing the operation of the ranch to continue to make ranching decisions as we have always done. It also provided funding to establish retirement funds and an investment portfolio, providing long-term income."
