All distances start and finish along the Colorado River on Grand Junction’s Riverfront Trail. Looking for a fast and flat (or first) 5K or 10K? Look no further! Both distances stay on the riverfront trail for a smooth and scenic race experience. Fall colors are at their peak in October, with stunning views of the river and Colorado National Monument’s red rock canyons accompanying you the entire way.

The 50 Mile, 50K, and Half Marathon distances cross the river and hop onto the Tabeguache trail network (AKA Lunch Loops) for some technical twists and turns. Half Marathon runners hit the halfway point on trail before heading back (on an out-and-back route), while 50K and 50 Mile runners will continue onto BLM land where the landscape really opens up. There’s a reason a bike race in this area is called “Tour of the Moon.” Surround yourself with rocky canyons and ancient juniper. Soak in expansive views of the canyons overlooking the Colorado and Gunnison rivers.
