We have the official green light for race day! 

We are excited to get this race moving forward! There are some changes and we will communicate often with you as they arise. Like any other Rock Canyon Half, we are dedicated to provide you a great race day experience! This year's race is capped at 500 participants so register early.

Race day may look a bit different this year with adding a Health check station before any participant can race. Masks must be worn in all common indoor and outdoor areas. Only racers may remove masks once they are past the start line. There will be a staggered start with self seated intervals and a time change with the race beginning at 8:30. Participants will receive further information as what to expect on race day. The course remains the same with all it's engaging trail beauty! Hoodies will be given to participants that pick up their race packet.

We will continue to adhere to any COVID changes and protocols from now and through race day. Due to any COVID changes, registrants will be able to transfer or refund their entry only if the race is cancelled by the race directors.

Thank you for the grace that you have allowed us as this year continues to surprise us!

Race details

Water Stops:
There will be 7 water stations. The first has only water. All the rest will have water and Gatorade. Located approximately 2, 4, 5.75 , 7.5, 8.25, 9.75 and 11.5 miles (odd distances but we have to put water stops where we can drive a car). The first water stop is in City Park and a good place to drop off clothes if you find you have overdressed. You are welcome to drop off clothing at all water stops but the water stop volunteers will not return to the pavilion until the last runner has gone by. If you throw clothing anywhere else on the course you may not see it again.


We have been blessed with great weather 9 out of the last 10 years but be prepared for anything. Pueblo is located in the "banana belt" of Colorado.  When it is snowing all around we tend to remain dry, which is great for runners but bad for lawns. Come prepared for snow and wind then be pleasantly surprised by the great weather we have in December in Pueblo. However, having a run in December is a gamble, we have never canceled in 28 years and we intend to run this race regardless of the weather.


Course map and parking:

Course map

Traffic through City Park is one-way so wind around the zoo to the east side of the park near the fountain and round about.  Packet pickup is inside the pavilion (the big building just northwest of the round about/east entrance and fountain) from 7:00 to 8:30. The race begins and ends near the pavilion. Parking is available on the streets within the park, so park wherever you can but watch for "No Parking" signs as some 2011 participants did get ticketed.  Please consider carpooling as parking is somewhat limited close to the race.
