Man of the Cliff

Saturday and Sunday, October 14-15, Nottingham Park, Avon

When an event kicks off with a resounding, "Gentlemen, start your beards!" you know it's not your usual weekend 5K. The valley's ninth annual Man of the Cliff  returns to Avon's Nottingham Park (sadly relocated again from its Red Cliff hometown), for a full weekend of axe throwing, speed chopping, spear tossing, and tug of war between flannel-wearing wannabe lumberjacks, with proceeds benefiting local nonprofits. While the event highlights all the manly action, Ladies of the Cliff are invited to join in the fun, and tweak the manly beards (and Bunyan-sized egos).

Colorado Snowsports Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Gala

Saturday, October 14, 5 p.m., Vail Marriott Mountain Resort, Vail

Vail Village's Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum inducts the Class of 2017 into its Hall of Fame with an evening of cocktails and dinner along with an award ceremony and silent auction benefiting the museum. Tickets ($225) must be purchased in advance.

Cars & Coffee

Sunday, October 15, 9 a.m., The Lion, Lionshead Village

If you're a fan of luxury cars, appreciate free coffee and donuts, or are just plain curious about the newest upscale residences in Lionshead Village, make your way over to The Lion on Sunday morning for all of the above.

Eagle-Vail Zombie Apocalypse FunRun

Sunday, October 15, 3 to 6 p.m., Eagle-Vail Pavilion

While the terms "zombie apocalypse" and "fun run" may seem contradictory, fans of The Walking Dead prove otherwise as they lurch and stagger in ghoulish costume over the 2-mile course to claim a t-shirt, a chance to win prizes, and celebrate with Zombie cocktails at the post-apocalypse afterparty.
