About The Carbon Valley Half Marathon

The Carbon Valley Half Marathon in Firestone, Colorado is an excellent race for runners of all levels. The course takes you along the beautiful Front Range and offers stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and prairies surrounding the area. The route is a loop with two out-and-back sections, allowing for a nice change of scenery during your run.

The terrain varies throughout the course, making it interesting to run on different types of surfaces such as pavement, dirt paths, and gravel roads. As you make your way around this looped route, there are plenty of small hills that provide challenge but also rewards with amazing views at their peaks. In addition to these scenic vistas, there are several aid stations throughout the course so that runners can stay hydrated and fueled up as they go along.

Typically when running this half marathon in May (the date changes each year), you can expect mild temperatures hovering around 70 degrees with some cloud coverage providing relief from direct sun exposure which makes it more comfortable to run in those conditions. On days like these where the crowds are out cheering you on further adds to an incredibly motivating atmosphere that will keep any runner going strong until they reach their goal!

One unique thing about this race is its post-run celebration that includes complimentary beer from local breweries as well as food vendors offering snacks for hungry participants who want something extra after finishing up 13 miles! For those looking for additional motivation or just wanting a little fun afterwards there’s even live music playing at certain points during festivities too so everyone can enjoy themselves after completing their own personal victory lap through Firestone’s rolling hillsides!
All in all if you’re looking for an enjoyable half marathon experience then I highly recommend signing up and participating in Carbon Valley Half Marathon – especially if you’re able to join us next year on 13 May 2023!
