Living Journeys Half Marathon
Join Living Journeys’ half marathon on July 23rd as they raise money for those battling cancer. The 13.1-mile course ascends from 9,370 feet in elevation to 11,472 feet. Participants start at the base of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and climb through Aspen stands and alpine meadows along a single-track trail.
The steepest two miles of the climb arrive on the service road, just before reaching the top of the Silver Queen lift. Then racers turn back down the mountain 2.3 miles before returning to another single-track trail, heading north through deep evergreen forest and open meadows. After a four-mile descent, the trail climbs yet again for a little less than a mile.
Next, racers are rewarded with a three-mile downhill finish through scenic alpine meadows bursting with wildflowers, aspen groves, and scenic vistas. Runners complete the loop finishing at the base of Mount Crested Butte where food and beverages await.
