    This is a beautiful tough race. Enjoyed the communications and expo. The race director seems very nice. I entered the race knowing it had a strict 5 1/2 hour limit. So race day as we rode the bus to the started I was disappointed to see so many hills. We started out in the cool temperature very fast. About mile 4 I ran a 8 minute mile and realized I was running at altitude. For those that say altitude doesn’t really matter… well it does to me. I couldn’t hardly catch my breath and the day continued that way. The best news I have for you is…. even though they say there is a 5:30 cutoff there isn’t. So all my worrying was for nothing… even those finishing after six hours received their times. So I successfully completed my Colorado race even though I thought I would be punished to come back again to this beautiful state. Scenery, lodging, food, and friends this is a great race… just so hard with altitude, hills, and lots of exposure to sun.

    Race starts out super scenic after bus ride north of town. Both marathon and half follow the Elk River and surrounding mountains (and “cheering” cows) back to town. Last three miles into town we lose the shade and exposed to the sun, but 2016 weather was fortunately accommodating so no issues. Recommend the run – biggest race in Steamboat and views/organizers/volunteers make it great.
