About The Westminster Trail Race
The Westminster Trail Race is a half marathon run along the trails of Standley Lake Regional Park in Westminster, Colorado. The trail winds its way through the park, taking runners past several lakes, meadows and wooded areas. The views along the course are stunning with plenty of opportunities to take in amazing vistas while running.
The route covers 13 miles total with much of it on well-maintained gravel trails or paved roads within the park itself. There are some short sections that involve road crossings as well as some hills throughout which provide an added challenge for runners looking for a bit more excitement from their race experience.
June is typically a great time to be in Colorado so expect pleasant weather during your race day – usually temperatures ranging from 50°F – 70°F (10°C – 21°C). It can get quite warm during this time of year so make sure you plan ahead and bring enough water if needed! Additionally, there will likely be some snow still lingering around at higher elevations so watch out for slippery patches if you’re running near these areas.
Runners should also expect large crowds on race day since this event draws many people each year due to its unique location and scenic course. If you’re not used to running around lots of other people then don’t worry – there’s plenty of space at Standley Lake Regional Park and even when it gets busy it isn’t too crowded.
One thing that makes this half marathon special is that all proceeds go towards local charities such as food banks, homeless shelters and other organizations dedicated to helping those in need in Westminster and beyond! So not only do you get to enjoy an excellent outdoor experience but you’ll also be giving back directly by taking part in this event – what could be better?
Overall, I would highly recommend signing up for the Westminster Trail Race if you have yet to do so! With its beautiful scenery and challenging terrain combined with great weather conditions plus a chance give back to charity makes it one unforgettable adventure that every runner should experience!
