Blogger, Paulette Thomas, Chamber Staff Member Are you running the Marathon this year? If we all had a dollar every time someone in town asked this question, our registrations may have paid for themselves. As the pride and excitement centered on this year’s race seems to have reached a new high, it’s difficult to find a reason not to run. Colorado ranks among the healthiest states in the U.S. and Steamboat Springs is no exception. Still new to this state, from time to time, I am taken back by the passion and excitement my fellow Coloradoans exhibit when talking about a new sport or weekend in the wilderness.

Our annual Steamboat Marathon, Triathlon, and Run Rabbit Run races are highlighted on many a calendar as we look forward to another year of training on our glorious core trail and all around the valley. The Steamboat Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k races are filling up quickly, as they do every year. On May 1st, registration for all races goes up by $10. I happen to have an inside scoop that there are less than 50 spots available for the half marathon. Moreover, who wouldn’t want to race on “One of the Most Scenic Runs in the Rockies? So, as we say in the biz –“Join the Herd” and register today!
