The Imogene Pass Run is an extremely difficult race for well-prepared athletes. Strict cutoff times will be enforced. Imogene Pass is exceptionally beautiful, even by Colorado standards. Because of its mountainous setting and the time of its running, however, the course is difficult and hostile weather is a very real … MORE

    1998 was the year I ran this amazing race! Not for your average runner — this was the beginning of my love for running mountains!

    I was 14th in age – 62nd woman for this iconic, challenging race. There was sleet and freezing rain at the top and the downhill descent was rough with the large boulders and loose dirt road. This race will always be a great memory for me and hope to go back and do it again some year!

    I think everyone runner on the planet should run this race at least once. It’s (1) the most beautiful run I’ve ever done, up and over Imogene Pass from Ouray to Telluride, running on dirt and rocky forest service 4×4 road for most of it with a smidgen of singletrack trail at top of the pass – scenery is simply breathtaking and (2) it’s really, really hard, while only 17.1 miles your marathon time is a good comp for what you’ll run the imogene in. Run it and be awestruck in the San Juan Mountains!

    This well-organized hometown race takes you from Ouray, Colorado to Telluride via a 13,000+ climb. The course is beautiful enough to distract from the difficulty (and by beautiful enough, I mean completely breathtaking), and the aid stations are among the best offering everything from cookies to chicken broth. While the course follows an unpaved road made for vehicle transport, the trail can be technical in spots, so trail shoes are recommended, and the downhill section is quite steep at the top.
