My boyfriend and I are seriously considering a big move out to Denver this upcoming summer. Obviously, one of my biggest considerations in a move will be where I can run. I know there are some serious trails out in Colorado (duh) but having never been out there, I'm curious to hear about the proximity of trails to Denver proper. I know there are plenty of running/bike paths in the city, but I'm more concerned with trails as I plan on training for a few ultras next year. How far does one have to drive to get to some good trails?
Tyler Trail 10k: 4.6.13 [55:06]
Delaware Trail 26.2: 4.27.13 [5:22]
Dirty German 50k: 5.26.13 [5:55]
Big Elk 13.1: 6.22.13
Vermont 50k: 9.29.13
Stone Mill 50M: 11.16.13

Depends on where you live... Denver metro is huge. If you're on the west side, you may not have to drive at all! Within 1-2 hours you've got 1000s of miles to choose from.
Not a bad place to live. Not bad at all.
It's sunny 300+ days a year too.
