Ranch Run

Ranch Runs are supported by Colorado CattleWomen as opportunities to promote beef in our local communities. 5K Ranch Runs have been held through our local affiliates across the state as fun, family-friendly events featuring beef on the menu and as prizes. Often, Ranch Runs are held as "poker runs" where the participants pick a card from each station, and the best hand at the end of the race wins a prize!

If your group has hosted a ranch run, please email details to coloradocattlewomen@gmail.com!


Routt County Cattlewomen hosted their 4th Annual 5k Poker Run on Sunday, October 2, 2022. This fun event began at the historic, centennial ranch owned and operated by Don & Judy Sherrod and end at the multi-generational ranch of Doc & Marsha Daughenbaugh. The event is a fun, family run (not race!) whereas the participant draws a poker card at each kilometer, culminating at the finish with a fifth and final card. Whoever holds the best poker hand wins a bundle of free, locally produced, cattlewoman produced beef.


The Gunnison Valley CattleWomen presented the Poker 5K walk/run for agriculture at the CharMar Park and on the Van Tuyl trail on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022. Aside from exercise, the event was held to promote the benefits of beef. The adult with the best poker hand won a beef package, and the youth won a prize bag.


The Washington County CattleWomen held their third annual 5K Poker Run on Saturday, July 30, 2022 as part of their county fair with the theme, "Country Stars & Big Ole Cars".

Participants received a free shirt with their registration and beef breakfast burritos on race day.
