Postponed: Due to the recent winter storm(s) we are postponing the Backcountry Wilderness Half Marathon originally scheduled for November 2. After assessing trail conditions it was determined that the trails would not be safe to run on. We apologize for this inconvenience but participant safety is of utmost importance. With that being said, the October 30th scheduled packet pickup has been postponed as well.
The Backcountry Wilderness Half Marathon will now be taking place on Sunday, November 17 at 9:00 a.m. Packet pickup will be on Wednesday, November 13 at Living The Dream Brewing Company. Please check the race website for further information as it becomes available:
Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone on the 17th.
This 13.1 mile scenic trail run utilizes the Douglas County East/West trail and the beautiful Highlands Ranch Community Association Backcountry Wilderness Area trails.
Parking will be available at Rocky Heights Middle School, as well as Rocky Canyon High School. It is a short walk to the start/finish line area from there!
Advance tickets must be purchased online. If not sold out, tickets will be available at the door for a higher price. All ticket sales are subject to service fees. All ticket sales are final and no refunds will be issued.
