The race includes a half-marathon (13.1 miles) run and relay race (entrants may run the half-marathon as individuals or as members of an up-to-5-person team) and a 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) run/walk. All events take place on the bike path in scenic Glenwood Canyon east of Glenwood Springs.

The half-marathon begins at 9 a.m. and the 5K starts at 10 a.m. Buses will take participants from the finish line at the No Name exit of Glenwood Canyon to the race starting points.  Be sure to check the Transportation and Parking for bus departure time.

The entry fee is $40 per person in the half-marathon and the 5K entry is $25 per person before September 9.
