Welcome to the highest downhill half marathon in the country and possibly the highest downhill 4 Miler!

The half marathon/relay** begins on a paved bike path at Loveland Ski Area and descends five miles to Bakerville. At this point, racers travel a paved road 4.5 miles to Silver Plume. From here, racers travel 3.5 miles of paved bike path and paved/dirt road to downtown Georgetown. The 4M begins at Silver Plume and travels 4 miles on paved bike path and road to the Town of Georgetown. These courses offer a fast race time for the serious runner and a scenic, fun route for the novice!

**PLEASE NOTE: This year the half marathon relay is OPEN TO EVERYONE and we still have our 3-person relay which requires the second participant on the relay team to be physically challenged!  

Important Parking Information:
All racers will be shuttled to the start lines from Georgetown Lake for half marathon/relay/4M races. There will be NO PARKING AT THE 4M START.
