Starunner Enterprises is pulling out all the bells and whistles for the fourth running of the DreamCatcher Half Marathon! This is a perfect event for all levels of runner - from first time to seasoned runner.
The DreamCatcher Half Marathon is a RRCA Colorado State Championship Race.
DreamCatcher Half Marathon is USATF Certified! USATF Certificate #CO15018DCR!
For the Half Marathon -
Full course support (water, hydration, fuel, encouragement, porto-pots), gender specific t-shirt, after-race party, SWAG bag and the most awesomest medal. In addition, there will be 4 Over All Awards presented to the first place male and female and to the "Had to Work the Hardest for the Goal" (last) male and female (4 awards, total).
The course does have a 6 hour limit BUT if a participant reaches Mile 9 by Noon, they will be able to continue on with full course support and full finish line amenities. If, by some chance, a participant is not able to make it to Mile 9 by Noon, they will have the option to continue on without aid station support or be leap-frogged to the last mile to walk it in. Finish line amenities WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE. After all, we're celebrating the effort of crossing that line and the accomplishment that it shows.
Hang around the finish and cheer runners and enjoy your post-race meal. Prize raffle will begin about 11 am so keep a hold of your raffle ticket (must be present to win)!
Your registration includes full course support, chip timing, aid stations with water, Skratch Labs, Honey Stingers (located around mile 9), unique race shirt in men and women's cut, unique finisher's medal, finish line snacks and hydration, a post-race celebration meal and a beer from Kannah Creek Brewery. The Kid's Dash includes everything but the Celebration meal.
Guaranteed T-Shirt size is only available for registrations received BY February 1, 2017.
DreamCatcher Half Marathon utilizes a reverse-wave start system where the longer expected finishers start before the quicker finishers. This ensures course support for EVERYONE and an exciting finish line thrill! You will be asked to select your start time when you register. In order to ensure accurate timing, we ask that you stick with your designated race start time.
The Kid's Dash will start at 10:00 am. If you are running the Half marathon and want to run with your child during the Kid's Dash, please pick the appropriate start time so you can finish your race in time for the Kid's Dash start at 10:00 am.
Registration for the Kid's Dash must be received by February 1, 2017 to guarantee a participant t-shirt. Kid's Dash registration does not include the Edgewater Finisher Party.

Volunteers are the engine that drives the DreamCatcher Half Marathon & Kids' Dash. 2017 marks our 4th Annual event! We would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all who have helped over the past 3 years and look forward to seeing old and new faces for 2017!
We could not make DreamCatcher a success without one essential ingredient — YOU! Volunteers are a vital part of creating this spectacular event. Volunteers provide safety and organization, while creating a fun and exciting atmosphere. It takes quite a few volunteers over the course of the event weekend to provide an amazing event for our participants here in the beautiful Grand Valley.
Volunteers are needed over the course of the weekend, starting with packet pick-up and continuing to race day.
Along with our heart-felt THANK YOU, as an individual volunteer for the DreamCatcher Half Marathon, you will receive:
Not only do we love our volunteers, but we LOVE when groups come out! Show your group/organization/company spirit by coming out together. In addition, we'll provide donations for qualifying groups (*some restrictions apply). Some of our popular group areas include but are not limited to:
