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.
This event will be a benefit for our friend Scott Blair and his family. Scott and his wife Connie have directed this race for many years and put a lot of time and energy into making this a great experience for our runners. Now its time for us to give back to them after Scott was recently and very unexpectantly diagnosed with a brain tumor. Come help us celebrate the joy of running and community spirit and come out in your best Independence day colors and or costumes, thank you!!
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. Runners will howevere pass by the aid stations several times.

- 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.
