A TRUE COLORADO TRAIL RUN - RAW BEAUTY AND RUGGED TERRAIN. This is a beautifully scenic and inspiring mountain running course.
The 1/2 marathon has adventurous and rugged single track, challenging hill climbs, and descents that open up to amazingly scenic views along dirt roads. The trail courses through mountains, stone hops a slow winding creek, crosses dark and historic tunnels, and offers a fast and exhilarating descent to the finish. Overall, the 1/2 marathon consists of 70% single track running and 30% wider trail and road. The 10k starts off with a tough climb, but soon gives way to some fun single track switchbacks and stunning views. At this point the trail descends to a road, passing through a dark tunnel and eventually catching back up with the single track. Then it's on for a beautiful downhill to the finish. Overall, the 10K consists of 90% single track and 10% wider gravel road. The 5k begins with an uphill climb of single track and switchbacks; the climb is tough but worth the effort. The halfway turnaround point offers an incredible view of the city, the mountains, and cliff sides- not to mention that it's all downhill from here. The 5K is 100% single track.
5K: $25, 10k: $30, Half Marathon: $40. Same Day Registration adds $10 to each.
