5K Course Maps and Description

The 5K course is an out-and-back, the majority on a lightly traveled, paved, two-lane county road.

Your hard work going up the steady climb for the first half of the race will be rewarded with a super-fast second half as you sprint back to the library. After you pass through the finish arch in the library parking lot, cool off your feet in the Mancos River.

There will be a port-a-potty at roughly the halfway point and an aid station just before the turnaround stocked with water and Tailwind Endurance.

STROLLERS are allowed but please be very cautious. The road is NOT closed to traffic.
