RUN on Colorado's most scenic race courses and enjoy the surrounding beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park. The 2019 MARATHON & HALF MARATHON courses start from the scenic Dao House on Hwy 7, and descend 1500ft within first 6.5 miles on mix of dirt trail, smooth surface road/pathways! The Half Marathon will continue to descend directly to Lake Estes Trail for breath taking views of the Continental Divide. The Marathon runners will travel on the Lake Estes Trail and run the Dry Gulch/Devil's Gulch loop, passing the historic Stanley Hotel. As with all great journeys, the mountainous beauty will encourage you to overcome the physical and psychological challenges of the climbs and feel the thrill of several scenic downhills. Share the celebration and joy of running with us! Runner’s World magazine recommends this destination race, for a reason!
