The ADT Half Marathon is the RRCA Colorado State Championship Race. The half marathon starts at 6:45 AM. Runners will run north on the Pikes Peak Greenway to a turnaround just north of Garden of the Gods Road and then turn back south along the same trail, continuing to the finish line at America the Beautiful Park. The trail is an urban trail with some sections of concerete, asphalt and crushed granite. Some of the concrete sections have an adjacent soft shoulder.
Participants can register online at RunSignUp.
