Where and When

9am Saturday May 14, 2022, starting in Fellin Park in Ouray, Colorado. Register here.

Course Summary

An easy out-and-back with only 140 feet of vert (1.3% average grade). The course includes about 0.50 mile on asphalt running track, 0.75 mile on smooth dirt roads, and about 2.95 miles on the Uncompahgre River Walk (a gravel footpath broad enough for easy passing). Although the course itself is easy, the altitude here is about 7700 feet above sea level. This may become a factor, especially when runners start getting tired!

Logistics

To be eligible to start any given hour, you must be inside the starting corral (red area) when the hour officially begins. No late starts! Once the hour starts, you must immediately embark on the course and remain on it, other than for restroom breaks, until you finish the circuit.

Near the starting corral are personal crew stations (including self-crewing stations) (blue areas). Each station may occupy no more than an 8 foot by 8 foot square. No tents are allowed in the park, but you can set up an open-sided canopy in one of the light blue zones, as long as it fits in the allotted space and as long as no stakes are used (weighting down the corners is recommended).

The shared aid tables (green area) offers snacks, hot and cold drinks, and hot food during certain scheduled mealtimes.

Overnight parking is permitted within the purple area south of the Start (accessible from 9th Avenue). You may use the Hot Springs parking lot before the race to unload or set up your crew station, but please don’t leave a vehicle there during the race.

The South Restroom is near the Start/Finish. A runner may visit this restroom either between laps (i.e., after finishing one circuit and before starting the next), or while on course from the dirt path on the west side of the building (i.e., not while you are on the asphalt loop). The North Restroom is on the River Walk and can be visited at about the 1.5 and 2.7 mile marks.
