Marathon – Beautifully Brutal
Don’t be fooled! This marathon course is a challenge, but you’ll finish with high spirits and a medal to remember. A perfect, point-to-point, downhill, gorgeous racecourse running through the Buckhorn and Poudre River Canyons and finishing in a valley at the base of the mountains. Prepare for the first 5 hilly miles of the course and then open up your stride for the next 21ish miles of downhill! Limited to 300 runners. Sign up early to reserve your spot!
Half Marathon – Wild & Scenic
Voted the best half marathon and the best race shirt in Colorado! Great race to run a new PR, your first half marathon, or run for the beauty and the beer! Enjoy the fall scenery along the Cache la Poudre, Colorado’s only designated Wild & Scenic River! Starting at the famous Mishawaka Amphitheater, run on a downhill point-to-point course to finish in a field of dreams where beer and music flow and runners spirits soar. Invite your friends and family and make sure you don’t miss this experience!
5 Mile – First to the Finish
Fast or Festive? You choose how you want to run the 5 mile race. Push yourself past the 5k and run a unique race distance. Starting at Gateway Natural Area take in beautiful views and enjoy the changing autumn leaves. The downhill point-to-point course joins that marathon and half marathon route, but you will arrive at the finish line party first!
