The inaugural XTERRA Trail Run adventure will be held around the Red Mountain trails in Glenwood Springs. Its a half marathon 12K and 5K trail race scheduled for October 20, 2019. The event is open to runners of all ages and skill levels. Experienced distance runners can opt for the half marathon course, beginners can take the challenging 12-kilometer and the entire family can have fun enjoying the 5-kilometer course. This is a great course for a first time half-marathoner or runner looking for a fun 5k course that offers single track and dirt road trails.
The start/finish line will take place at the Glenwood Springs Community Center parking lot next to the community garden. The trail begins here and heads towards Red Mountain's north face. The Half Marathon course will ascent up the east side of Red Mountain's north face. Runners will begin a grueling scramble up to the ridge itself. It is steep and strenuous but not dangerous. Once on the ridge ascend towards the top of Red Mountain's North Face stop and enjoy the astounding views.
At 7,893, Garfield County's Red Mountain isn't a very powerful peak, but it does have a name and a dramatic north face that towers 1,600 above I-70 and West Glenwood Springs.
Professional timing services will be provided. Races will be chip-timed.
