Course Details

The point-to-point course is run along Clear Creek and is a scenic and gently rolling mountain course that winds down the Clear Creek Valley. The course runs along the frontage road that runs parallel to, but well away from I-70. Vehicular traffic on the course is normally minimal, however be aware that the road is not closed to traffic. Runners must stay to the right of the yellow lane line.

There is .5 mile of gravel road in the 2nd mile, and 1.5 mile of dirt road from mile 6.5 to mile 8. Also be aware of a steep grade with a 90° turn at the bottom of Clear Creek Drive in the 1st mile of the course.

The elevation at the start is 8,500 feet, and gradually arrives at 7,500 feet at the finish. Temperatures in the early morning at this elevation can be 50°, and can reach 85° by the finish. While conditions are usually optimal at this time of year, athletes should always be prepared for adverse weather while being in a mountainous location.

    this is an amazing course that is beautiful from beginning to end. I would like to see water at the start line as there is not another water station until mile 3 and its a long bus ride up to the start
