New Marathon (Downhill start) and Half Marathon Courses in 2017      

100th Anniversary:   Town of Estes Park  ~  Baldpate Inn, 7 keys! 

Marking the 100th Anniversary for the Town of Estes Park and the historic Baldpate Inn, we are introducing a new marathon course! Celebrating local history and our unique landscapes, the marathon will start at the Baldpate Inn. The Mace Family were known for their love of running and frequently ventured out from the Baldpate Inn to surrounding meadows, peaks and river side destinations. We are excited to have our course be where they left off!  EPM runners will run down the Homer Rouse Trail and Fish Creek Road, for a 1000 ft. descent, to Lake Estes.  Runners continue onto the popular Dry Gulch- Devil’s Gulch loop for breath taking views of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker. Finishing at the Estes Park Track & Field, all runners will be greeted with cheers and solidarity!  Keep Running! 

“Do this run to celebrate all that you love about running …
and to experience the grandeur of a spectacular part of the world” – 2007
