The Town of Frisco has opened registration for the 45th annual Run the Rockies Road Race sponsored by The Steadman Clinic & Steadman Philippon Research Institute, to be held on Saturday, September 18 at 7:00 am. The race, originally held in June and now moved to the fall, returns to the classic course, which starts at Copper Mountain, continues through the Ten Mile Canyon on the Summit County Recreational Path, and ends on Frisco’s Main Street. In 2019, avalanche debris and the related conditions have made that route impossible, and in 2020, considerations for public health orders moved the race to the Frisco Adventure Park.
“We moved the event from early summer to fall, a change that was necessary last year, but has proven beneficial moving forward. Yet, we are so happy to welcome runners back to the more traditional course. This will showcase the beautiful fall colors in Frisco, and make the 10k a speedy, downhill course, and the half-marathon a bit more challenging as we turn runners back uphill before finishing at Main Street,” stated Linsey Joyce, Assistant Recreation & Culture Director/Programs Manager.
Race registration opened online on June 18, 2021. Included in registration is professional timing by Maverick Sports Promotions, one aid station on course, a finisher gift, and a post-race party with awards for the top three male and female runners in each race, as well as age category winners.
