Welcome to the Glenwood Springs Half Marathon & 10K


Brutal but Beautiful! This course starts and finishes at the Glenwood Rec Center, and will get your heartbeat cranking at mile 2 as you head up Red Mountain on a closed dirt road to the top! Focus on the way up, but enjoy the views as you pick up the pace on the way down. Finish up the last 5 miles on amazing rolling paths of dirt and gravel as you run against the bright red rock cliffs (the 10k only heads up 1/5 of the mountain).

Don’t forget to go hit the Hot Springs after your long day!
