This is our 10th year of running the 25k and signature race.  This challenging course  starts at the Beaver Lake Lodge in Marble.  After a half mile warmup around the often misty lake, runners begin the 4 mile, 3000 foot climb into Lead king basin.  From here you will stay high for a few miles (see video) then drop down into the old mining town of Crystal.  Pass the historic Crystal Mill which some say is the most photographed site in Colorado and numerous waterfalls as you follow the Crystal River back to Marble.
