Runners follow a point-to-point course that starts at Hot Springs park in Ouray and finishes at the soccer field in nearby Ridgway. In between, runners make their way north along County Road 17 (also called Oak Road), past Black Lake and make turns onto Suzanne Lane and Marys Road near the town of Portland, and then turn onto County Road 23 and begin heading northward again along the river. The last few miles take them in to the finish line in Ridgway.
