Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 30, 2011 2:13 pm

Copper Mountain, CO – Copper Mountain is getting ready for their 3 Ring Weekend, this July 1-3, 2011. It promises to be a weekend that is full of ‘edu-tainment,’ hands-on activities promoting movement, creativity and learning, a mountain carnival atmosphere and live music from Jeremy Dion and The Salteens (Yo Gabba Gabba alumni).

For those looking to get a bit more active this Fourth of July holiday weekend at Copper, there will be a Copper Mountain Half Marathon, Trail 10K/5K, and the kids MaraFUN. The Half Marathon is on Sunday, July 3, and will deliver runners with spectacular views. The Trail 10K will be on Saturday, July 2, and the 5K on Sunday, July 3. The kids MaraFUN is on both July 2 and 3 and is only $10.  Every kid will receive a finisher ribbon, a goodie bag, a frozen treat (Otter Pop), as well as admission into the racer’s BBQ. Can we all wish to be 10 years old again?

New at this summer’s 3 Ring Weekend is The Big Wheel Rally. The Rally is for both kids and adults Copper is bringing the best of the 80s back. There will also be The Solar Powered Bubble Tower which is self-sufficient and requires no outside electricity. Children of all ages are captivated by the endless variety of shapes, sizes and colors of the bubbles.

Be a part of the mountain action and bus, bike, walk or jog to the event. 3 Ring Weekend – Red, White, Blue…and GREEN!
