Snow Mountain Ranch Trail Festival Half Marathon

Entering its 11th year, the Snow Mountain Ranch Trail Festival Half Marathon is otherwise known as the season finale of the Endurance Race Series and is one that offers the most beautiful course amidst the Rockies. 

Scenic Views, Trail Runners. Surrounded by autumn colors, picturesque views, and rolling hills, this half marathon course is often dubbed the most beautiful course in the Endurance Race Series. 

Taking place at the end of September, racers can expect to enjoy mild and pleasant fall temperatures 

Starting on 1101 County Road at the YMCA of the Rockies, this non-technical dirt trail half marathon takes runners along a looping course that has 3-6 major hill climbs and four total aid stations. 

Running along County Road 53, participants will cross Waterfall Trail at the end of mile 2, with their first hill climb beginning at mile 4. From there, runners will loop back onto County Road 53, heading toward Goylord Reservoir. With one more loop, runners will then head toward the finish line. 

This event offers all half marathon participants a generous four (4) hour time limit to finish, encouraging walkers and runners alike to join. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in both male and female categories, and all finishers will receive a finisher’s medal.
