Colorado Springs, Colorado
The Incline in Manitou Springs is an intense but fantastic workout! It will test your legs, calves and your lungs, all at the same time. It is also a test of your mental stamina and resolve. It will push you to your limits and ask you for more. You will gain almost 2000' in elevation in an ascent that is almost 1 mile long. Careful, it is addicting.
After you get to the top and take in the amazing view of Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, you can run down Barr Trail for just over 3 miles of challenging trail running.
