ALL PARKING FOR ALL RACES IS AT LOVELAND SKI AREA!
Nothing will be at Georgetown Lake as the property has sold. EVERYTHING will be staged at Loveland Ski Area, Exit 216 off I-70.
As an additional heads-up:
It will help immensely if you can pick up your bib in Denver at Runner’s Roost Lakewood on June 19, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and YES, your friends can pick up your bib for you---they just need a name and which race you are doing.
On Slacker’s Eve, June 21st, downtown Georgetown-Strousse Park, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
ON RACE DAY:
If you have your bib ahead of time (before race day):
AND, you are doing the half marathon or are the 1st person in the relay, drive directly to Loveland Ski Area BASIN (the parking lot closest to the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel)
If you have your bib ahead of time (before race day):
AND, you are doing the 4-mile or 2nd or 3rd person relay events, drive directly to Loveland Ski Area VALLEY (the parking lot closest to Denver)
If you plan on picking up your bib on race morning, please drive directly to Loveland Ski Area VALLEY to the registration tables and retrieve your bib.
We will have buses from here to take you to the BASIN for the half marathon start or you can walk the ½ mile.
Please make a note of this info and share with your friends/family doing the race!
This info is invaluable to your efficiency and race start on June 22, 2019.

Come join us for the highest DOWNHILL half marathon in the country and possibly the highest DOWNHILL 4 Mile Run!
Do not be misled by the name but this is the Slacker Half Marathon/4M Race! It is the highest downhill half marathon in the country–beginning at 10,630 feet and traveling over a rolling hill descent to 8400 feet! The half marathon begins at Loveland Ski Area--BASIN and travels the first mile on dirt roads before joining a non-motorized paved bike path for five miles through a Forest Service area of wetlands and natural waterfalls on a trail built to sustain the weight of an ambulance!
The second 3 miles travel from Bakerville to Silver Plume along a paved frontage road with amazing views of the Continental Divide and mining remnants.
The last portion of the trail & the 4-Mile race travels from Silver Plume to Georgetown on a paved bike trail (and paved road) with scenic views of the Georgetown Loop Railroad and the largest Bighorn Sheep herd in the State!
The race ends in downtown Georgetown where there are more freebies than you know what to do with!
RUN ON. SLACKERS!
We have clothing drop boxes at all start lines! It is cool at the start so feel free to bring a jacket and we will bring it to the Finish Line for you!
Please do not drop your clothes along the race course and expect to find them at the finish. You MUST drop your clothes at the START lines or they will be donated to our Clear Creek Victims Advocates.
