Up in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado, the Rio Grande begins it's 1,800 mile journey to the Gulf of Mexico. The Runoff Runoff marathon, half marathon, and 6K follow the scenic headwaters of the Rio Grande, ending in the historic mountain town of Creede, Colorado. Organized by the Headwaters Alliance (formerly the Willow Creek Reclamation Committee) and the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project, this event raises funds to support river restoration projects that improve water quality, wildlife habitat, recreation, and the overall condition of the Rio Grande headwaters.
The Runoff Runoff event includes a marathon, half marathon, and 6K race run at 9,000 feet, and is usually held at the beginning of June. Following the races there is a fun celebration for the whole family, complete with live music, local beer, and food.
