A Colorado favorite for 20 years, the Steamworks Half Marathon is a point-to-point race through the beautiful Animas Valley.  You'll start at scenic Baker's Bridge, right on the Animas River, and run a mostly flat course into town with a few rolling hills.

Afterwards, enjoy a great post-race party by the pool at Durango Sports Club, with food and beer provided by Steamworks Brewing.

Don't delay -- this race is very popular, and with a cap of just 300 runners it will sell out quickly.

Race Details

Start Times:

There are two start times for this race:

MAIN FIELD START: The main field starts at 8am.  The majority of runners will start at this time.  If your race pace is faster than 12 minutes/mile, you must start in the main field.

EARLY START:  There is also an early start at 7:15am for anyone who needs extra time on the course.  If you are a walker, or if your estimated per-mile pace is 12 minutes/mile or slower, please sign up for the early start.  You will receive an official finish time and will be listed in the race results, however you will not be eligible to win or place in your age group.

NOTE:  Do NOT sign up for the early start if you know you will be faster than 12 minutes/mile.  This is a safety issue, as you will arrive at sections of the course before our course marshals and aid stations are in place.  You will also cause confusion for our timing company at the finish line.  Also note that only participants in the main field start are eligible to place in their age group.

Packet Pickup:

Packet pickup will take place on Saturday, August 11 from 4:30 - 6:30pm at Steamworks Brewing, 801 E. 2nd Avenue, in Durango.

If you can't make it on Friday, packets will also be available on race morning from 6:15 - 6:45am at the Durango Sports Club.  If you need to pick up your packet on race morning, please arrive by 6:30am to ensure we can get everyone checked in on time.

If possible, please come Saturday, as this makes life easier for everyone on race morning.

You may have someone else pick up your packet.  We're easy -- just e-mail us and let us know.


Bus transportation from Durango Sports Club to the start line is included in your registration.  There is no parking at Baker's Bridge.  You are also welcome to get dropped off by a friend at the start line.

The bus for the early start leaves at 6:35am.  The bus for the main start leaves at 7am.

You will be asked on the registration form whether you plan to ride the bus.  This information helps us to plan for the correct number of buses.  Please help us out so we don't ask bus drivers to get up early on a Saturday morning if they aren't needed.


Limited parking is available at the Durango Sports Club.  Additional parking is available at Grace Church, two blocks before the Sports Club on Florida Road.  Street parking is also available.

Aid Stations:

There are six aid stations on the course, approximately every two miles.  Each station will have water, PowerAde, first aid, and friendly volunteers.  The station near mile eight will also have bananas and oranges.


Toilets will be available at the Sports Club, at the start line, and near mile 5 and mile 9 on the course.

Post-Race Party:

After the race, all runners and spectators are invited to celebrate by the pool at the Sports Club.  Bring your swimsuit!  Steamworks Brewing will provide lunch and beer for all the runners.  Guests can purchase food and beer for $10.  The awards ceremony will begin at 11:30am.
