Blisters & Brews is a 5k Fundraiser Race on the morning of Saturday, September 15th, giving Festival patrons the opportunity to exercise before the Festival. The 5k Race, sponsored by BootDoctors™ Paragon Outdoors and presented by the Telluride Blues Society, will raise money for the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program in remembrance of dear festival friend Felix Snow.
Through registration fees, donations and the generous support of the Telluride community, we were honored to be able to raise over $1,500 for the Telluride Adaptive Ski Program in 2017. We're looking forward to another amazing year of support.
Don't want to run, but want to support? Non-athletic support donations are also available.

Beginning and ending in Telluride's Elks Park, Blisters & Brews provides runners with a safe, beautiful way to kick off their Saturday in downtown Telluride. The route and start / finish area have been planned to enhance the running experience and highlight the beauty of the heart of Telluride. The race route climbs up the river trail giving racers the opportunity to take in the beauty of the Bridal Veil Falls on the way up and a gentle decline for the way back down to town and ending at Elks Park followed by live music, free beer and free Blues & Brews Yoga Sessions to bring the pre-Grand Tasting zen to a maximum. Race winners will receive a variety of gear and swag.
