Welcome to the Half on the 4th Half Marathon! This fast and well shaded 13.1 mile course will begin and end in Monument Valley Park in Colorado Springs. There are aid stations at every mile and bathrooms along the course. The race follows the Greenway Trail with a mix of cement and hard pack pea gravel. It is a slight downhill on the way out and a slight uphill on the way back. All participants will receive a free t-shirt and medals for finishers. There is a large play area in Monument Valley Park for the kids (that aren't running) to play on while mom or dad is finishing her/his race and a public pool (run by the YMCA at additional cost) to cool down after the race!
Directions: If you are coiming from I-25, take the Uintah St exit east and go south on Cascade (less than a mile after exit). Go one block to Cache La Poudre St and take a right (west). After 500 yards on Cache La Poudre you will run into Monument Valley Park. Look for free parking along the roads as you are coming towards the park.
Event schedule and times
Packet Pick Up: Packet pickup will be at Boulder Running Company (3659 Austin Bluffs Pkwy #32 Colorado Springs) on July 3rd from 11:00am-6:00pm. We will also have race morning packet pickup at the park on starting at 6:00am. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you pick up your packets on July 3rd. Our volunteers work hard, but it is inevitable that there will be a line at pack pickup race morning and to avoid this please pick up your packet on July 3rd if at all possible.
Free Stuff: All participants will receive a free t-shirt and medals for finishers. NOTE: if you sign up after June 27th, we may not have your size and you may have to pick up your shirt from a local running store (specifice one to be determined) a few days after the race. We will mail shirts to participants outside of the Colorado Springs area apon request.
