Race Information

Back for the second year in 2017, the La Sportiva Half Marathon will again be held at Camp Hale on Highway 24 south of Red Cliff, Colorado.  The half marathon will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, followed by a 10K and 5K at 9:15 a.m. Bring friends and family and enjoy a great day of trail running, unique views of some of Colorado's tallest peaks and the best swag from national brands. 

Course Description

The half marathon course will utilize well-maintained dirt roads, the Continental Divide Trail, and the Colorado Trail surrounding beautiful and historic Camp Hale. This will be a rare opportunity to compete on the same terrain that the troops of the 10th Mountain Division used for training during World War II. The 13.1-mile course is situated at 9,200 feet above sea level and will have minimal elevation gains reaching peak heights of 9,500 feet.

The 10K and 5K races will begin 15 minutes after the half marathon. The courses will be out and back, utilizing the gravel roads in the camp area. There will be aid stations for runners of all races.

Please note: There is no cell service in the Camp Hale area, please plan accordingly. Race personnel will have communications with emergency operations in case of emergency.


Parking will be available within Camp Hale. Please do not park on the private property of Nova Guides. We will have staff directing traffic to proper parking.
