Event Information

Permit Type(s): County Road
Website: http://www.comarathon.com
CO-14 from Steven's Gulch to Highway 287 (~17.25 miles), Highway 287 to 54-G (~1.25 miles), 54-G to Cache La Poudre Middle School (3 miles) then on the Poudre River Trail.

Running Race in its 19th year. The marathon starts at Steven's Gulch Day Use Area and runs down CO-14, then south on 287, takes a right on 54-G before hoping on the bike path down to Lee Martinez Park and the finish line at Washington Park. This is the same course as previous years with roughly the same number of runners, vendors and volunteers.

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 the same location. The half marathon is the second half of the full marathon course and he 5k is the last 3.1 miles of the full marathon course.

We will bus runners up to 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 once they are updated for the 2020 race. Sanitation will be provided by Gallegos as it has been for the last several years.
