The Autumn Color Run is held each year in and around the historic, friendly, and picturesque town of Buena Vista, Colorado nestled in the upper Arkansas River Valley at the base of the Collegiate Peaks. The ACR began as many races do with one run, and as it grew over the years the Autumn Color Run has consistently worked with community organization to raise funds and awareness through running. The ACR continues to support the organizations that support our community.

The Autumn Color Run is proud to support the organizations that support our community.

Our race is authorized under a special use permit with the USDA Forest Service. All staff at this event are volunteers and they are proud to provide you with an experience you will remember! The race will once again be professionally timed by Five Star Timing. Proceeds from the event will go to Starpoint and the Boys & Girls Club of Chaffee County.
