We have two course options. We will decide prior to opening registration which one we will use.
Option 1: Our hope is to run our classic point-to-point course from Hesperus to Ska Brewing. This is the original race course that features lots of downhill and views of Lake Nighthorse.
Option 2: If we are unable to bus runners to the start line, we will switch to our out-and-back course along the beautiful Animas River, starting and finishing at Ska Brewing. It is mostly flat with gorgeous scenery.
Point-To-Point Course Description
Beautiful. Scenic. Fast. This course starts at Hesperus Church and runs through Wildcat Canyon and past Lake Nighthorse. It includes plenty of downhill and lots of great views along the way! Oh, and did we mention that your finish line is a brewery?
Out-And-Back Course Description
Also beautiful. Also scenic. Also fast. This course runs along the Animas River on La Posta Road, and is mostly flat. The best part is, your finish line is still a brewery!
We use the out-and-back course if we are unable to provide bus transportation to the start line for the runners.
