Starting on Highway 14 at Steven's Gulch, the course runs down the Poudre Canyon to downtown Fort Collins. It will be teh same course as prior years.
This is an established event (12th year in 2013). There is a full marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k. The full and half marathon both start in the Poudre Canyon. Participants run down Highway 14 before turning right on Highway 287 and then another right on County Road 54G before entering a bike path. We promise to leave all affected areas cleaner than when we found them.
Comments: Fort Collins special event permit application will need to be submitted. We are still waiting for the certificate of insurance with liquor liability. Fort Collins has no problems with the county portion. The city permit will be issued upon receipt of the insurance certificate.
Comments: Please ensure that a detailed emergency communications plan is available, and that all staff and volunteers are familiar with the plan.
