About Aspen Backcountry Marathon

Boasting spectacular views of the Elk Mountains and the city of Aspen, Colorado below, the Aspen Backcountry Marathon is run almost exclusively on high country dirt trails. Challenging ascents, exciting descents and wide diversity in terrain will challenge even the most well trained athlete.

By finishing in the heart of downtown participants will be greeted by a crowd of spectators and supporters.

This race will be a limited support race. There will be food and water stations, portable toilets at the start/finish, volunteer crews, timers, and mile markers. There are volunteer medical personnel along the course and at aid stations, but there is no guarantee of rescue or medical attention. Each participant is ultimately responsible for their own rescue and preparation for course and weather conditions.
