Check-In and Packet Pickup

All runners must check in on race morning.  Please come to the Student Union Building.  Check-in opens at 8:30am.  Please arrive no later than 9:30am so we can ensure an on-time start for the race.

Race Course Description

The race features a beautiful course with views of the Animas Valley and La Plata Mountains. This race is the only day of the year that runners are allowed access to the beautiful trail by the reservoir.

The race begins at the clock tower on the Fort Lewis College campus, winds along Rim Road to the golf course, and then heads up into the Hillcrest neighborhood. From the top of Hillcrest, it proceeds down past the reservoir, across Goeglein Road, and behind the golf course before finishing back at the clock tower.

An aid station with water and Powerade is available at mile 3 of the course.

The course measures out at 4.93 miles. There are a couple moderate hill climbs, just enough to work up an appetite for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Post-Race Awards Ceremony and Celebration

Stick around after the race as the fun continues.  We will gather in the amphitheater by the finish line and hold a turkey gobble contest, followed by awards for all the age group winners in the race, and then a prize drawing with lots of great prizes donated by local businesses.
