2010 Course Description

The start line is on Lakeview Dr near Chipeta Park, a block east of State Highway 119  in downtown Nederland. Runners will start west bound to State Highway 119, runners turn south for two blocks to Spring Street west bound. The route turns south on Jefferson St and west on Pine St for about ½ mile, all on dirt roads. The course joins County Road 130 westbound, past the Nederland High School about a half mile to the 5K turn around. Runners can run on the roadway or on the flat dirt shoulder. The 10K follows CR 130 west to near the bridge entering Eldora. This is one of the most scenic stretches of road in the area. Both routes go back toward town on the outbound route, finishing the final third of a mile east on Big Springs road to south on Conger Rd, and west on Lakeview Dr to the finish, just past the start line. Each mile is signed. The elevation is 8,236 feet at the start-finish. There is a gentle up slope along the outbound route and the return route rewards runners with swift down slopes.

Last minute registration is at Chipeta Park as are refreshments after the races.

Registration, merchandise booths and AWARDS PRESENTATIONS AND DRAWINGS will be at Buffalo Bills’ Coffee & Confections (the train cars) by the Carousel of Happiness in the Village Shopping Center parking lot.  Awards are scheduled at about 10:30 (5K) and 10:45 (10K).
