Emma Crawford Coffin Races

Downtown Manitou Springs
800 Manitou Ave.
Manitou Springs, CO 80829

Seventy teams will compete in this creepy history-inspired race, during which competitors dress up as 19th century settlers and push pinewood derby cars along a 195-yard route. Each car will be decorated to look like a coffin, and every rider will be dressed as Emma Crawford, a Manitou Springs resident who had to be reburied when her casket rolled down a mountain after a rainstorm. Even if your team doesn’t take home the trophy, you can still win an award for wearing the most convincing old-timey costumes. Sat noon-3 p.m.
