Half Marathon

  • 21.1km


Aid Stations

You will find six aid stations approximately every two miles starting at mile 2.4. Aid stations will provide water and Powerade. They will also have first-aid bags and cell phones for emergencies. The aid station near mile 8 will have bananas and other snacks.

Equipment Storage

Feel free to bring a bag to the start line. We will have a vehicle to collect drop bags and transport them to the finish line. Please mark your bag with your name and/or bib number.

Maximum Time

We welcome runners of all abilities, and there is no official time limit on the race. You can be out on the course as long as you like. However, the finish line will close at 11:30am and the last aid station at mile 11.5 will close at 11am. Therefore, if you are slower than a 15 minute/mile pace, you should plan to carry your own water.


There is no parking at the start line in Hesperus. Please park at the finish line in the lots listed below, and ride the buses that we provide. Or, feel free to have a friend drop you at the start at Hesperus Church on Highway 140. We will have a parking coordinator stationed at the entrance to Ska Brewing, and he will direct you to the nearest lot with available space.


The race will be professionally timed with timing chips. Please ensure that your bib number is visible and on the front of your shirt, as this is the backup timing system in the unlikely event that your chip fails to register a time.

Beautiful. Scenic. Fast. We designed an awesome point-to-point course that includes plenty of downhill and lots of great views along the way!

Oh, and did we mention that your finish line is a brewery?
