The Estes Park Marathon & Half Marathon event is changing race date to September 20th, Sunday.
We will ONLY have the Estes Park Half Marathon and our 10K races. We will NOT have the Marathon this year. We want to simplify our 2020 race event due to the COVID-19 issue. Start time for the Half Marathon at The Dao House is 6:30AM, using a 1 minute stagger start time to help social distancing.

Port o let placement and access to restroom buildings will remain the same on the Half Marathon course.

Rocky Mountain Transit is our shuttle vendor for the Half Marathon. We will have runners use seat distancing on the buses. We plan to provide face masks for ALL Half Marathon runners as part of their race packet goody bag. We will ask each runner on the shuttle to wear the mask during transit. We will have a garbage bags available for disposal, once runners are at the start line.

We will be updating our Cert. Liability race dates.
