Runners, mark your calendar, and get that training schedule set. The Town is hosting its fourth annual Half Marathon later this month.
The event is set for 7 a.m., Saturday, June 25. The Half Marathon, presented by Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, begins at Festival Park, near Second and Perry streets, and continues through Downtown Castle Rock. Runners will finish the race with a scenic view along East Plum Creek Trail.
Online registration is available through noon on Wednesday, June 22. However, registration will still be available following that date at advance packet pickup locations and on the morning of the race. Prices for walk-up registration increase by $5. Runners must also pay by either cash or check.
Advanced packet pickup and onsite registration will be from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, June 23, at Runners Roost Lone Tree, 9994 Commons St., or from 4 to 7 p.m., Friday, June 24, at the Castle Rock Recreation Center, 2301 Woodlands Blvd. Race day packet pickup begins at 6 a.m.
If 13.1 miles doesn’t seem like your thing, don’t worry, there are two other courses available. The 5-Mile Race takes the best part of the Half Marathon course but cuts the distance. Plus, there’s the Rock Challenge for athletes looking to achieve new heights with their fitness routines. The Rock Challenge will take adventurous runners up the steep ascent and descent of the iconic Town monument, the Rock. This course stretches a little more than 6 miles.
All three events will be professionally timed, and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers. Keep in mind, there will be aid stations along the routes, as well as port-o-potties.
Additionally, a post-race expo will help make the Half Marathon a great event for the entire family. Plus, all racers will receive a pancake and sausage breakfast.
