Devil on the Divide

Devil on the Divide - September 8, 2018

Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District (CCMRD) is pleased to present one of the most beautiful and challenging trail racing events in the state of Colorado with breathtaking (literally and figuratively) views of Clear Creek County and the Continental Divide. Participants will reach a top altitude over 13,000 feet.

The 50K course climbs over 6500 feet.  Due to the difficulty and remoteness of this race, prior ultra running experience is required.

New as of 2016 – a 22K course option!
The 22K course follows the first part of the 50K, making it one of the toughest half-marathons in the state, with 3400' of climbing, reaching an altitude of 13,200'.  The 22K course is not recommended for novice trail runners.  It is a tough course at high altitude.

Cut-off times are enforced for both options.

The Devil made me do it...

Running Up For Air

Running Up For Air

Suffer Better is hosting the inaugural Colorado version of Jared Campbell’s successful Utah-based Running Up for Air event.  Launched by Jared in Salt Lake City some 5 years ago, RUFA draws attention to Salt Lake's horrific winter air and raises money for improving Salt Lake's air quality. The CO version is intended to do the very same thing. Our air here in the Mile High City during the colder months can be, as you know if you live here, also horrific.  A growing population, ongoing construction and emissions from an increasing number of cars and trucks contribute to reduced air quality, while regular winter inversions occasionally hold the poor air over the city like a foul-smelling, nasty-tasting blanket.  The health consequences for everyone, including athletes, can be harsh.

We will be hosting the first Colorado Edition of Running Up for Air on a parcel of private land near Evergreen, CO. The course begins at 7700 feet and each lap takes runners up to 8500 feet and views of Mt Evans and Denver.  Each lap is a 2.7 mile circuit of forest road and rugged trail through a beautiful pine forest. Runners sign up to run for 3, 6 or 12 hours, repeating laps up to Granite Peak and back down.  Participants are also asked to obtain pledges for their laps from friends, family and colleagues, the proceeds going to Conservation CO, a local 501c3 organization, to support their work and advocacy to improve our air.  We will also be donating 10% of our proceeds to Jared's chosen nonprofit in Salt Lake, Breathe Utah, which also focuses its good work on clean air.

 

Join us March 31, 2018 and put your energy into running for clean air!
