Acerca de Basalt Half Marathon

An annual fixture in Basalt, Colorado for more than three decades, the Basalt Half Marathon takes runners on a beautifully scenic course that runs alongside the Frying Pan River in the valley between the mountains in what is known as the “Heart of the Roaring Fork Valley,” named for the Roaring Fork River, whose waters meet those of the Frying Pan River near the town center.

The Basalt Half Marathon race combines the stunning beauty of the Frying Pan Valley and a fast downhill course for a great summer race experience. 

The Basalt Half-Marathon is partnering with 3 other half-marathons to form the Downhill Half-Marathon Race Series. The Mountain to Valley Half, Aspen Valley Half-Marathon and Glenwood Canyon Shuffle races along with the Basalt Half will be giving out age group awards to runners who accumulate the most points from the series races. This race is the 3rd leg of the 4 race Downhill Half Marathon Race Series.
