While the full marathon starts all the way back at Steven’s Gulch Campground off Highway 14, the starting line for the half marathon falls at exactly the 13.1-mile point in the race, at a bend in the road along Highway 14 near Gateway Mountain Park. From there, runners follow the highway as it twists and turns through the canyons, along the Poudre Canyon Highway through Log Canyon and through the towns of Bellevue and Laporte, to the finish line at Fort Collins’ Old Town Plaza.
