Alexander Pope wrote, "She moves like a goddess and looks like a queen." These words embody and depict the feel and spirit of the running series and each individual running event associated with the running series.
So challenge yourself like a diva, run in this very unique event, and celebrate the power of being a woman with other strong and beautiful ladies. After the sun, receive an incredible, blinged out finisher medal at the finish line jewelry store, dress up during the run at the feather boa station and tiara stop, receive a flower from a handsome fellow at the finish line, toast your accomplishment with champagne and dance the afternoon away at the post race celebration.
Discover Vail Valley during this great event. Experience the beauty of Vail in the summertime, with its amazing mountain vistas, superb climate and just enough of a challenge to make you feel strong and accomplished but still able to enjoy a night in the town during our Diva Weekend. The Divas Half Marathon in Vail, to be held on August 21, 2011, will be the complete girls weekend package. Come in for a few days to enjoy the run, but also enjoy this amazing town with shops, dining, tons of other outdoor activities, and of course, world famous spas. As you run in the valley you will experience some rolling elevations but the route is designed with no sharp climbs. You will however, experience the best of the mountain experience with runners enjoying views of the Gore and Holy Cross Mountain Ranges, running adjacent to Gore Creek and Holy Cross Wilderness, plus running through the iconic Vail and Lionshead Villages, finishing at Ford Park and being given a medal, flower and a flute of champagne by a handsome mountain hunk.
This event begins at an altitude of 8,247 ft but it is mostly flat with a total elevation gain of only 348 ft!
