If you are uncomfortable with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and the August 8th event we are happy to offer you a full refund right now.
The City of Aspen is continually monitoring the restrictions and suggestions of both our local and state authorities. Currently, we are under specific closures until April 30th. If the social and health restrictions extend into summer and we are unable to meet the guidelines of the CDC and our local authorities, we will cancel the marathon.
We also believe that exercise is an important part of staying health and we hope to be a bright light at the end of this situation and the end of the marathon finish line.
Utilizing the beautiful trails that surround Aspen, offering two options, a full or heavy half-marathon, both run almost exclusively on dirt trails. The diversity of terrain, challenging ascents & descents and overall elevation gain will challenge even the most well-trained athletes. With spectacular views of the Elk Mountains above and the city of Aspen below, this is one race you’ll be sure to remember! And…there is over $8,000 in cash and prizes.
This race will be a limited support race. There will be aid stations, portable toilets at the start/finish, volunteer crews, timers, and mile markers. There is volunteer medical personnel along the course and at aid stations, but there is no guarantee of rescue or medical attention. Each participant is ultimately responsible for their own rescue and preparation for course and weather conditions.
