Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and sometimes it is hard to have enough time to plan the perfect getaway for that one special person in our life. We tend to go out of town and spend our money elsewhere, and sometimes forget about some of the hidden gems that are in our own community. Or we just stick to the traditional venture every year of candy, flowers, and dinner.
Whether you are visiting or live in Colorado Springs, every season is great time to get out and explore our beautiful city. The businesses and tourism centers offer a variety of activities you can enjoy all year long. Below you will find a list of events that you can enjoy for the month of January while staying at the St. Mary’s Inn.

This race is often called America's ultimate challenge and with good reason. Sure the race starts out like any other race. But your first left turn has you changing direction to go straight up. During the first 10 miles you will gain about 5,000 vertical feet. Over the next 3 miles you will gain another 2,000 feet. These runners will be running where trees can't even grow due to the lack of oxygen. The race ultimately is 13.32 miles to the summit with a gain in elevation of 7,615 feet. Then for the deluxe tour, runners must turn around and run back down the mountain. With blood filled blisters and lack of oxygen the runners must carefully make their way down, avoiding protruding rocks and roots that could easily send one sprawling to the ground to be mangled. Keep in mind that by that time, the temperature has risen around 30 degrees from the start of the race. Do you have what it takes to run Americas Ultimate Challenge?
