The sound of pounding feet will echo across the Yampa Valley this weekend as runners in the Steamboat Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K run their way toward the finish line in downtown Steamboat Springs. With all races finishing downtown, the event brings some street closures for most of the day on Sunday, June 2.
From 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. the westbound lanes of Lincoln Avenue will be closed from 5th to 11th Streets for the finish of all races. In addition, 6th Street between Lincoln Avenue and Oak Street will also be closed due to race activities. A rolling closure on 5th Street from Lincoln to Oak may be encountered Sunday morning, between 6am and 9am.
When traveling US40 west of downtown and along Routt County Road 129 (Elk River Road), anticipate numerous runners, support vehicles and emergency apparatus on the road and please slow down and give ample room when passing. Additional traffic controls will be in place further north on CR 129 with detours and one-way traffic. Traffic controls and pilot car operations will also be encountered.
The 38th annual running of the Steamboat Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k takes in the roaring Elk River Valley through the emerald green pastures on Country Road 129 with the snow-capped Rocky Mountains of Colorado all around. The Steamboat Marathon was ranked as one of the Top 10 Destination Marathons in North America and is a signature event of the Steamboat Chamber and community.
