Beginning at Olympian Hall the run will take you throughout the Howelsen Hill trail network of new and established trails. This race is a beautiful loop on Emerald mountain starting on the Bluff’s trail, heading uphill on Lupine trail and finishing downhill via MGM and the Meadow trail to the base of the historic Howelsen Hill Ski Area. All running will be on trails and the course will be well marked with one main aid station at the top of the climb. To help reduce cup waste, we highly recommend carrying your own hydration bottle or pack, thank you!
