The Ralston Half Marathon follows a mix of roads and bike
paths on the west side of Arvada. The opening five miles are fairly flat, with
a barely noticeable gradual gain in elevation.
Miles 5-6.5 are rolling, with one good climb leading to the high point
of the course atop Ralston Mesa. From
there the course is almost all down hill and flat to the finish with the
exception of a small bump at mile eight.
Aid stations every two miles.
Prize money offered: $1000.
For 2013, weve added a 5k to round out our 5k Run Series
starting with the Stocking Run in December.
The Yeti Chase in January is your second 5k and the Ralston Creek 5k
will be the third and final in the series.
