Colorado at its Best - the Carbon Valley Half Marathon will showcase the beauty & diversity of Colorado's best-kept secret nestled right between Denver & Fort Collins. Small town charm with Big City services, Firestone & Frederick are the perfect host for these 13.1 & 5K adventures.

The entire course has spectacular views of the Rockies and has a 2 mile downhill fast finish! The 13.1 route is a certified course.
