The half marathon relay event is open to teams from all walks of life and abilities – corporate, families, friends, women, men, students, open…if you can organize a team of 2 to 4 runners or walkers, then we want you to come and take part!
Leg one: 3.0 Miles
From the starting line leg 1 will head East through the Firestone Sports Complex to CR 15 and turn North on Frontier Blvd. This leg of the race covers two miles on a dirt road and trail and travels North up a quiet country dirt road and “V” turns to continue SW on the only undeveloped portion of the Firestone Trail. The SW portion of the trail passes the historic turkey farms and continues SW onto the paved portion of the Firestone trail and finishes at the Booth Farms Ave. crossing.
Leg two: 3.7 miles
Leg 2 continues South along the lovely Firestone trail to Pine Cone St. At Pine Cone the route travels west onto the bike path one the North side of Bella Rosa Golf Course and continues through a bit of the Moore Farms neighborhood then traveling West along the bike path to Bobcat St. At Bobcat the route travels South to the West end of the Milevac Lake’s dirt bike path and merges onto the west end bike path of Milevac Lake. This portion then cruises along the West, then South rim of the lake around to the NE corner and then u-turns (not a turn-around) South along the lower portion of the lake.
Leg three: 3.0 miles
Leg three starts exactly at the halfway point in the race and will continue SE along the bike path in Milevac lake park and continues through the tunnel underneath Colorado Blvd and joins with the bike path in Miners Park and continues South along the Firestone trail. It continues to the historic Downtown Frederick 5th St. East along Fifth to Hawthorne. Then turns North on Hawthorn to Tipple, East on Tipple to the undeveloped dirt portion of CR 15 then travels North along CR 15 to McClure Ave.
Leg four: 3.4 miles
The last leg heads directly North along CR 15 where you are surrounded by the historic Coal Mines which defines the Carbon Valley. The route continues North along the East side of Saddleback Golf Course and crosses Pine Cone on a crushed refined trail that you will enjoy 2.5 miles downhill all the way to the Finish Line.
There will be no relay shuttle service. Participants must make their own arrangements to drop-off/pick up your runners
