Course Preview Runs

A Great way to –

  • Get a feel for the course so you know what to expect on race day. Every single person who has done this race says it is harder than they thought. These preview runs are a great way to familiarize yourself with this course.
  • Demo Salomon shoes
  • It is also a great way to get to know others, meet new running partners and find people to carpool with.

Megan leads these runs and makes sure you understand the layout of the land – – it is confusing with 70- course junctions on this course (don’t worry, it will be well marked on race day), but it is good to get a good sense of how it all fits together.

She makes every effort to make sure there are faster runners who know the course well who can lead the faster runners. If you are one of these, please reach out to Megan. She would love your help. Megan will wait for the back of the pack.

You must have an annual or day Colorado State Park Pass.  The visitor center will not be open before we leave for our run, so you must arrive with exact cash amount to put in the envelope to pay for your day pass if you do not have an annual state parks pass.  You can get these envelopes at the visitor center or at the Nott Creek TH (Red Barn). Please make sure you take care of this as anyone without a pass will be ticketed.

 

May 2, 2020 - Aid 3 to Finish - 7:00 am

We will meet at the Red Barn Overflow, 3.5 miles down Crawford Gulch Rd from the Visitor Center at 7:00 a.m.  This lot is right off Crawford Gulch Rd at the Nott Creek TH.  Make sure you have an annual or day State Parks Pass, or you will get a ticket.  You can get a day pass at the Nott Creek TH.  You need to have $8, the exact cash amount to put in the envelope.  We will leave most cars here and carpool with a couple of cars to the Horseshoe TH (Aid 3).

Salomon Running will be there with shoe demos

Orange Mud will provide pack demos.  Arrive early and get geared up.

7:15 - we will head to Aid 3

Please bring the course map and the written course description with you, so you may find your way if you get separated from the group.  There is no way I can make sure everyone sticks together. Be prepared to run the course unmarked for the course preview runs. There are 70 junctions on the 50K course that you will need to be able to navigate.    The race director, Megan will be at the back of the pack keeping everyone who waits on course, and there will be faster runners to help lead that are familiar with the course, but they will not know it 100%, so bring a map and description.

Please join us if you know the course.  We could use all the help we can get to help keep everyone on course.

Avoid getting a ticket by displaying your annual or day Colorado State Parks Pass on your vehicle.  Bring $8 cash to put in an envelope, which can be picked up at the visitor center or Nott Creek Trailhead.  Please carpool if you can.

May 9, 2020 - Start to Aid 3 - 7:00 am

7:00 a.m. - We will meet at the Horseshoe Parking Lot (Aid 3). This is less than a mile past the visitor center on Crawford Gulch Rd on the left. We will leave most cars here, which is where we will finish, and carpool with a couple of cars to the Start area at Nott Creek.

Arrive early and get set up with Orange Mud hydration pack demos.

7:15 a.m. - We will carpool to the start of the race at the Nott Creek TH about 3.5 miles up Crawford Gulch Rd. from the visitor center and start our run from here and run to Aid 3, approximately 17 miles.

Please print out and bring the course map and the written course description. There are many junctions and there is no way I can make sure everyone sticks together.

I will be running with the back of the pack.  If you know the course please come join us and help keep runners on course.

You must have an annual or day Colorado State Parks Pass.  Bring $8 cash to put in an envelope that you can pick up at the visitor center or at Nott Creek Trailhead.  The visitor center will be closed until after we leave for our run, so you will not be able to use a credit card or get change.  If you do not have a parks pass you will be ticketed.  If you can carpool.
