Join us for our fourth annual 1/2 marathon in Highlands Ranch. This is an amazing course utilizing the Douglas County and new HRCA Backcountry trails. The race starts at 6,000 ft. It goes up to a high point of 6,400 ft and then back down to 5.900 ft... all before the turn around. It is not a lot of elevation gain, but there is alot of up and down.

This is a challenging course with 95% of it on dirt trails. Dogs and strollers are not allowed. This course has amazing views, possibly wildlife viewing and a mountain feel to it right here in Highlands Ranch. We race rain or shine or snow!
