Monarch Pass to Downtown Salida


The Salida Pole, Pedal, Paddle began in 1999 and is a truly unique, multi-sport event. The Salida Pole Pedal Paddle was reborn in 2008, and had a hard core following until 2014, when it lapsed back into hibernation. Starting in 2018, the Salida 3P is back!

Following the path of the spring runoff, competitors start at the Continental Divide, on Monarch Pass, with a back country ski leg, then mountain bikes carry competitors in the shadow of Mt. Shavano to the banks of the Arkansas River, where whitewater kayaks take paddlers into downtown Salida for an exciting finish. Participants can compete as a team or individually. This dynamic and fun route, from the highest peaks of our state to the rushing waters of the valley floor, creates an unparalleled event. The Salida 3P highlights the outdoor athlete’s transition from ski season to spring activities.
