Click Here For Directions to Start/Finish and Course Details
Many think that the Steamboat Marathon and Half Marathon are the only times to race longer distances on road in Steamboat Springs....Not So, we have another one here for you! The Mountain Madness Half Marathon joins the Hayden Cog as one of the two oldest races in Steamboat Springs and the Running Series. This is a great race held over 4th of July weekend. This race takes runners along beautiful county roads with sweeping views of the Ski Area and the Yampa River.
There will be 3 full aid stations total on the course, we highly recommend carrying your own hand held water bottle to reduce waste and for your own hydration, especially for the Half marathon. 10k ers will hit an aid station at approximately 2.5 miles and then again at 3.5 after their turnaround. Half marathoners will hit an aid at 2.5 and ~ 5.7 and one more as you turn around on River Road, you will then hit the first two aid stations again on your way back! So... runners will pass by the aid stations several times but the route is very sun exposed so bring water!
What: Half marathon and 10K on paved roads.
When: Saturday, July 5th, 2014. The start time for the half marathon is 7:30 am and 10K race is 8:00 am. Races will start on River Road at the Parks and Recreation parking lot.

- The ½ marathon and 10k races start at Howelsen Hill Park in the parking lot of the Ice Rink
- The 10k is an out and back on a relatively flat (for Steamboat!) course with 1 short steep hill before the turn around that is approximately .5 miles long.
- The ½ marathon follows the same course for the 10k to start, heading south on River Road paralleling the Yampa River for a time before turning right and heading uphill through Dakota Ridge. The course continues on a rolling hilly path, then circles back along beautiful River road with fabulous views of the Steamboat Ski area and the Yampa Valley.
