Race Description

Hey Slackers!
Come join us for the highest DOWNHILL half marathon in the country and possibly the highest DOWNHILL 4 Mile Run!

Do not be misled by the name but this is the Slacker Half Marathon/4M Race! It is 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 and travels the first five miles through a Forest Service area of wetlands and natural waterfalls on a non-motorized paved bike path built to sustain the weight of an ambulance!

The second 4.4 miles travel from Bakerville to Silver Plume along a paved frontage road with amazing views of the Continental Divide and mining remnants.

The last portion of the trail & the 4-Mile race travels from Silver Plume to Georgetown on a paved bike trail (and paved road) with scenic views of the Georgetown Loop Railroad and the largest Bighorn Sheep herd in the State!

The race ends in downtown Georgetown where there are more freebies than you know what to do with!

This is the eleventh annual Slacker Half Marathon/4M Race and we are offering three great races:

The Slacker Half Marathon

The Slacker Half Marathon 3-person Relay

The Slacker 4-Miler

This relay has a really great option! This year, one choice in the 3-person half marathon relay is you must have a physically challenged participant on your team to complete the second portion of the course (4.4 miles of newly paved road). The other option is the relay is open to everyone –just have 3 on a team!
