RUN AMONG THE PEAKS!
June 17th * August 11th * September 8th
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 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. 2018 introduces the new downhill course, with a point to point route.
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.
September: The series wraps up with the Ned*Ned Half Marathon in Nederland in September. 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.
