Join us for the 7th edition of Emma Coburn’s Elk Run 5k! Race in person in Crested Butte, Colorado to run in paradise at 9,000ft elevation or participate virtually anywhere in the world. Our aim is to provide an epic race day experience for everyone while raising money for a great local charity. In total, we have raised $265,000 for Living Journeys, a charity that supports local residents who are battling cancer. The 2023 Elk Run 5k will be run in honor of Emma’s mom, Annie, who passed away in January 2023 after a three year battle with Stage 4 colon cancer. We hope to make Annie proud!
