Durango Marathon ? course open for 9 hours, walkers welcome.
This course has been designed to be runner friendly ? no killer hills here. Starting on College Mesa the Durango Marathon quickly, but gently drops 360 feet in elevation as you make your way to Main Avenue; this is the biggest elevation change on the course and the rest of the route is flat to rolling and you don?t climb back up the hill to Fort Lewis College. Finish is on Main Avenue in the middle of a block party complete with live music and Marathon Ale brewed by Steamworks Brewing especially for the Festival for Runners.
Start: Fort Lewis College - Finish downtown Durango
