RUN AMONG THE PEAKS!
June 16th * August 10th * September 7th
We all love a Colorado original and we certainly love the beauty and tranquility of our rocky mountains. Three of Colorado’s original & most beloved half marathons-Estes Park Half Marathon, Georgetown to Idaho Springs & Ned * Ned– have joined together to create:
The Colorado Mountain Half Series
Run Among the Peaks and experience the beautiful seasons
Starting in June, ESTES PARK HALF MARATHON, part of the Estes Park Marathon, offers a fun race weekend with activities & race distances for the entire family. Runners and friends will enjoy this popular destination race. Run this extraordinarily beautiful, mountain landscaped course, that is surrounded by Rocky Mountain National Park.
Early August: Next test your speed and work to a new PR with one of Colorado’s oldest half marathons, the Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon (known as GTIS Half) takes place in August. You start at beautiful Georgetown Lake between towering Rocky Mountains as you cruise through what is mostly a downhill and fast course into iconic Idaho Springs.
Early September: The series wraps up with the Ned*Ned Half Marathon in Nederland in September. This gorgeous course offers road shoulders and 70% trail terrain. Surrounded by golden Aspen groves and vast scenic views of snow capped Continental Divide mountains, Runners will enjoy all that is amazing in Colorado. Nederland is known for its amazing beauty and the world renowned Frozen Dead Guy (I know I have your attention now). It is nestled in a valley cut out by glaciers; you will run mostly on trails in beautiful national forests with Barker Reservoir as your backdrop.
