America the Beautiful Park
America the Beautiful Park,
The event's half-marathon starts and finishes at the city's America the Beautiful Park, which lies just off Conejos Street, between West Colorado Avenue and West Cimarron Street. From there, the out-and-back loop course for the race takes runners on what is largely a north-south route through the city.
From there, the course proceeds along the sections of the trail that wind through local parks like Sonderman Park, Monument Valley Park and the Pikes Peak Greenway, with ample views of nearby Pikes Peak and the Rampart mountain range. Largely fast and mostly flat, much of the half marathon course unfolds on trails along Monument Creek.
The first half of the course takes runners northward from the park to Garden of the Gods Road, which is the turnaround point for the return back to the park for the finish. About half of the race course takes runners along trail surfaces with hard-packed gravel, while the other half of the race is run on paved surfaces. Runners also will experience a slight uphill along parts of the first half of the race, and a slight downhill along parts of the course coming back to the finish line.
