Description:

DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSE, THIS EVENT IS COMPLETELY CLOSED TO NEW REGISTRATIONS. RACERS WHO WERE ALREADY REGISTERED CAN ADD A FINISHER MEDAL AND/OR TECH TEE TO THEIR EXISTING REGISTRATION UNTIL MAY 31ST. The Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon is one of the most pleasurable runs in the western United States. The race course parallels Clear Creek and is a very scenic, gently rolling mountain course that winds down the Clear Creek Valley. Vehicular traffic on the course is normally minimal. Be aware, however, that the road is closed only for one lane. Runners must stay to the right side of the road. Although the course is at high elevation (8500 ft to 7500 ft start to finish) it is a relatively fast one due to the gentle downhill nature. The course is certified by the USATF (CO-02020DP ). The course is not compatible with wheelchairs or strollers because it includes a trail section.
