Update: We've been working hard to revise the 13er course and we've done it! You'll find an even more picturesque and runnable 13er course in 2017. Additionally, you spoke up and we listened. You wanted the 10k to return. It's back and features the majority of it's course on the Mesa. We all know what mesa means! Good for the view, good for your time!
The start line & finish line for all distances and the registration, late packet pick up and Skirt Sports Shopping & expo are all here:
Home Depot - 1200 Dillon Road, Louisville, CO 80027
There is 1 water station which runners will pass twice on the course. The 5k and 10k distances are OUT and BACK, which means runners need to stay to the right to avoid oncoming racers.
The 13er will see a water station 6 times at approximately miles 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.5. NUUN, electrolyte replacement/sports drink, and will be offered starting at the 3rd station near mile 6 and onward. Energy gels will be available at one aid station only; the station near mile 6 near South Boulder Road and Cherryvale Rd
Port-a-Johns will be at the Expo (start/finish) and at approximately miles 6 and 9/10 on the half marathon course. There are no restrooms on the 5k or 10k course.
CUPS - yes, there are cups at the aid stations.
Get a quick boost of energy right before you climb the big hill on South Boulder Road! Saint Ambrose Church will be out with delicious gummy worms at approximately mile 6.5!
Please use the Cinebarre or RTD lots for parking on race day. Follow the signs as you approach on Dillon Road.
The 10k and 5k courses are on asphalt and concrete and crushed gravel.
The 13er uses asphalt (or your choice of crushed gravel on the road's shoulder) until approximately mile 9 where racers enjoy the crushed gravel of the Davidson Mesa Trail and Harper Lake for about 3 miles before returning to asphalt/concrete.
