May 1 Update: After the switch to a virtual race, half marathon runners were automatically registered for the virtual challenge if they did not move to another distance or defer to 2022 by April 14. If you missed out on registering for the 2021 race - don’t worry! We are bringing the Steamboat Marathon, Half and 10K to you with our virtual challenge option. Register to run your route from wherever you are in the world!
April 5 Update: We are excited to celebrate our 40th Anniversary race with you on June 6, 2021! Thank you for your patience as we worked through the many details of this year’s event. The Steamboat Half Marathon will take place as a virtual challenge this year due to challenges related to COVID-19. Half marathon participants will be able to pick out their favorite route from wherever they are and compete with runners across the globe! The full marathon and 10K races will remain in-person events. This is the first large event returning to Steamboat in over a year, and we are committed to the health and safety of all runners, staff, and the community.
We are proud to continue the tradition of our small-town race which would not be possible without your continued support, especially in this challenging time. We will continue to communicate updates and look forward to cheering you on.
"The Steamboat Marathon is a unique combination of beautiful scenery and extraordinary people, which makes this race fun for everyone who participates,” says Paul Sachs, the Steamboat Marathon Race Director.
"Runners from all over the country look forward to the Steamboat Marathon because it is still a relatively small race with a hometown feel and it’s a race where every runner counts."
Runner's World chose the Steamboat Half to feature in it's Bucket List: 9 Destination Half Marathons.
