Lake Pueblo State Park's Eagle Day Festival

Every winter, bald eagles wing into Colorado to hunt the open waters of our rivers and streams. One of the best places to see them is Lake Pueblo State Park. On Feb. 7 and 8, the park is holding its annual Eagle Festival. Free events include speakers, kids activities, live bird displays, eagle-watching hikes and a release of rehabilitated birds of prey from the Pueblo Raptor Center.

For more information about the Pueblo Eagle Festival, call 1-719-561-5300 or visit www.eagleday.org.


Mountain bike racing rides again

Local bike racing, which made a comeback in 2008 after several years in hibernation, will come roaring into 2009 bigger than ever. The Carmichael Training Systems Sand Creek Series will include regular Wednesday evening races during the summer, plus these marquee events:

• Bear Creek Park, May 10
• Carmichael Training Systems International Classic (Western finals of the U.S. Cup) at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, June 13
• State Games of America and Sand Creek Series Final at the Air Force Academy, Aug. 1

For more information, go to sandcreeksports.com.


Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon

Sign-up for the region's most popular (and most grueling) running races has just been announced.

Last year, organizers began requiring qualifying runs to winnow the glut of runners racing to register. This year, they've kept basically the same system in place. The only major difference is the registration day. It is March 11. Check the Web site for times; these races can fill up in minutes. www.pikespeakmarathon.org
