Estes Park Marathon 2011 – Race Report

Marathon #9 : Estes Park Marathon 2011
12th June 2011, Estes Park, Colorado, USA
Finish Time = 4:38:09

Billed as “The highest paved marathon in the US”, the course was 8,150 feet above sea level. Lots of steep hills and blazing Colorado sun in the middle of June made this one of my toughest marathons. Leah ran the half as she wasn’t fully up to marathon distance yet.


Found this at the start, luckily I didn’t need it


Amazing views along the course

You couldn’t ask for a more scenic marathon
