Do not be misled by the name but this is the Slacker Half Marathon/4M Race – the highest downhill half marathon in the country, beginning at 10,630 feet and traveling over a rolling hill descent to 8400 feet!
The half marathon begins at Loveland Ski Area (BASIN), and travels the first mile on dirt roads before joining a non-motorized paved bike path for five miles, through a beautiful Forest Service area of wetlands and natural waterfalls – all on a trail built to sustain the weight of an ambulance.Continuing from Bakerville to Silver Plume, the next 3 miles takes you along a paved frontage road, complete with stunning views of the Continental Divide, and historic mining remnants. the last portion of the trail & the 4-Mile race travels from Silver Plume to Georgetown on a paved bike trail and road with scenic views of the Georgetown Loop Railroad and the largest Bighorn Sheep herd in the State!Revel in your success as you end your race in Historic Georgetown where there are more freebies than you know what to do with! New for 2023 – expanded after party (more details coming soon!)
