Half Marathon

Right in your backyard, Adams County!

If you've not visited the Adams County Fairgrounds, you're in for a treat.  Far enough from the foothills to be FLAT, but close enough to be BREATHTAKING, this course meanders past lakes and rivers on concrete and gravel under the shade of giant cottonwoods.  Don't get so caught up in the scenery that you forget you're RACING; this course is BEAUTIFUL! Once you race here, you'll want to come back again and again.

Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome and celebrated here!


Right in Your Backyard!


All participants will receive a short-sleeved, gender specific cut, technical tee. CLICK HERE for details including size charts.

Both 5k and Half Marathon finishers will receive a FINISHER MEDAL!


Charity Partner

We are very exited to partner with Food For Hope for the Adams Half & 5k!  Food for Hope delivers food to local children in Adams County. For this race you have two ways to help out. You can make an online DONATION or bring in-kind food donations for a chance to win a raffle prize! Either way you choose to help out your generous donations go directly to LOCAL Adams County children.  Food for Hope programs include:

Weekend Food Bags: Every week, volunteers meet to put together a bag full of nutritious food for each child enrolled in our elementary school program.  Bags include a vegetable (canned or fresh), a fruit (canned or fresh), whole grains, protein items, and 2 breakfasts/snacks. Volunteers deliver bags to participating schools on Thursday of each week, to be distributed before they leave for the weekend.

School Fuel: Students need snacks at school to maintain focus, keep their energy up, and find success in their classes. Many teachers have reported to us that they use personal finances to purchase extra snacks for their students who are not able to bring one from home. We created this program to provide school day snacks, and alleviate the financial burden from teachers who are providing this on their own.

NEW IN 2022:  We are now supporting 8 In School Food Banks in Adams County!

Give Your Shoes Another Life

We are proud to partner with Sneakers4Funds! When you donate your gently used or new athletic shoes, a donation is made to our ongoing charity partner, Growing Home!  Click here for more info!
