Where should I stay?2023-11-21T16:20:00+00:00

Can I walk the course?2021-02-19T18:52:53+00:00

Yes, as long as you can maintain the course minimum pace. We welcome runners and walkers of all speeds. However, volunteers, on course-aid and roads can only be secured and staffed for a set amount of time.

The course will “close” on a continuous pace of 16:00 minutes per mile. Anyone who cannot maintain the 16:00 minute per mile pace must move to the sidewalk as the course closes to allow regular traffic through. Runner services cannot be guaranteed for participants beyond the 16:00 minute per mile pace.

Is there a place to leave my belongings at the race start?2023-11-21T16:21:40+00:00

There is no designated gear bag drop. Parking is close by and we suggest leaving your belongings and extra layers in your car.

How do the race shirts fit?2023-11-21T16:22:20+00:00

All participants will receive a long sleeved wicking t-shirt at packet pick-up. Wicking shirts generally run smaller than standard cotton shirts. They will be available in unisex and women’s cuts. Please note that shirts are ordered weeks in advance of the event and that size quantities are based on what participants indicated when they registered. For this reason, we ask that you please pick-up the shirt size you registered for.

Yes! In fact, we encourage it and would be happy to refill it along the route at the aid stations.

Eventbrite Credits

Our registration platform has phased out their credit program. Any credits issued will be available for use up to their expiration. After the credit expires, we regret that we cannot honor the credit for future events.

Extreme Weather Policy

The mountains and time of year bring obvious chances of adverse weather conditions. Runners should monitor the weather leading up to race day and prepare accordingly.

Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry fee when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
