About The Windsor Marathon
The Windsor Marathon Half Marathon is a spectacular race that takes place in the small town of Windsor, Colorado every October. The route winds through the scenic and picturesque countryside, with beautiful views of rolling hills, meadows, and forests. It’s an ideal course for both experienced runners and those who are just starting out on their running journey.
The half marathon course is fairly flat with no major hills or steep sections to tackle. This makes it great for all levels of runner as it offers plenty of opportunities to set personal bests or challenge yourself along the way. You’ll pass by several small towns and rural areas during your run where you can take in the sights and sounds as you make your way towards the finish line in downtown Windsor.
October is usually a comfortable time of year temperature-wise in this region; temperatures are typically mild with highs around 65 degrees Fahrenheit (19 Celsius). Runners should prepare for some windy conditions though, as gusts up to 20 miles per hour (32 km/hr) have been known to occur during this race!
As far as crowds go, expect lots of local support from residents lining up at various points throughout the route cheering you on! There’s also usually a great turnout from nearby cities such as Fort Collins who come out to cheer on their fellow runners too. It definitely helps motivate everyone participating even further!
Finally, something special about this particular half marathon event is that they have partnered with several local charities over recent years enabling them to donate part proceeds from each entry fee directly back into these causes – so not only do you get to experience an amazing day but you’re helping others too! Altogether if you’re looking for a good half marathon race that has a fast course combined with excellent scenery then look no further than Windsor Marathon Half Marathon – it won’t disappoint!
