Half-Marathon Route


Explore the Runoff Runoff Half-Marathon route for yourself! Point A is the start line on FS Road 772 and Point B is the finish line at the Creede Ball Park. Three aid stations will be located approximately every 4-5 miles along the course. 


As you run, you will follow the Rio Grande as it flows downstream. Because the course follows the river valley of the Rio Grande, it is fairly flat, with only 404 feet of elevation gain.

Half Marathon Route

Distance: 13.1 miles


Course Description:  ​The Runoff Runoff Half Marathon will  follow the second half of the marathon route, starting at the entrance to the Rio Oxbow Ranch, just off of Highway 149. The course runs 7.2 miles on 149 until it veers right onto Deep Creek Rd. From Deep Creek, the course heads north on Airport Rd and then continues onto the Willow Creek Floodplain Trail for the final leg. The final mile follows the trail along Willow Creek to the finish line at the Creede Ball Park. (See map below)


Shuttle:  A bus will pick up all half marathon runners at 9:45 am at Creede Ball Park and transport them from the Ball Park to the start of the race at Rio Oxbow Ranch.  All runners will be required to take this bus as there is no room to park at the race start. 


Aid Stations: There will be three well-supplied aid stations located approximately every 4 miles along the course. Water, sports drinks, assorted snacks, and first aid will be available at each station. Two stations will be equipped with portable toilets. Runners should plan to carry any addition water and necessary gear for the entirety of their run.


Packet Pick-up for all of the races will be available Friday afternoon (June 16) from 4-7 pm at the Creede Chamber of Commerce and on race-day, starting at 6:45 am at the Creede Ballpark. 


Goodies Included with Registration: ​ All runners will receive a performance t-shirt, a ticket for the bbq and local beer, a commemorative pint glass for finishers and of course a guaranteed fun time with friends listening to live music!
