Additional details about the event: This is a running race that is point-to-point and includes a full marathon, marathon relay, half marathon, 10k and 5k. All races (except the 10k, which is completely in the city limits of Fort Collins), are on the same course and finish in Fort Collins, near Washington Park.
The full marathon starts at Stevens Gulch Day Use Area on CO-14 and runs East to Highway 287, then South to CR 54-G. The runners then get on the Poudre River Trail bike path at the Cache La Poudre Middle School, staying on the bike path all the way to Lee Martinez Park. The half marathon starts 13.1 miles East of the full marathon on BLM property along CO-14. It then follows the same route as the marathon.
We will bus runners up the starting areas so there are not a significant number of vehicles up in the canyon. Traffic control will be provided by Loveland Barricade as it has been for the past several years. I will upload traffic control plans soon, once they are updated for the 2019 race. Sanitation will be provided be Gallegos as it has been for the past several years.
