Larimer County provides many services for its citizens. You can get information about those which can be found on our website from either an alphabetical or categorized list below. Use this list if you're not sure which department provides which services.
The Human Race is a run/walk with 5k and 10k events. The 10k race will be on county road for ~ 2 miles from the intersection of Taft Hill Road and Laporte to the Poudre bike trail, running on the east side of Taft Hill in the bike lane. See maps for both race courses.
Comments: Please ensure that a detailed emergency communications plan is available, and that all staff and volunteers are familiar with the plan.

Comments: Emergency Access: An emergency access path of no less that 20’ wide shall be maintained free and clear of all immovable objects on streets and fire apparatus access roads at all times during the event. Road blocks may be placed on public streets to prevent traffic from crossing, but cannot block emergency travel. If road blocks are used ensure staff is available to remove barricade should emergency travel be necessary. (2006 IFC, 503.1). Tent Permits: Any tent or air supported membrane structure greater than 400 square feet requires a tent permit. Any canopy over 800 square feet also requires this permit. The application for a tent permit can be found at www.pfafireprevention.org under the permits tab.
Comments: We do have planned maintenance along the proposed route(s). We are unable to guarantee that participants will entirely avoid traversing surfaces that have recently been treated. However, given the day of the week this event is scheduled for, this event should not conflict with any currently scheduled road maintenance or construction activities. At the time of the event, portions of the route(s) may traverse roads that have recently received repairs or surface maintenance. The surface maintenance techniques may include asphalt overlay, chip seal and seal coat. For purposes of coordination, the event coordinator must contact Justin Hersh, Materials Manager at 970-498-5662 thirty days prior to the event. We will coordinate our work in the area as best we can, yet no guarantees can be made. Event promoters are reminded that they are not to post event signs on traffic sign posts within the public road Right-Of-Way or paint on the surface of the road.
