Run Through Time Marathon
March 9 @ 6:30 am - 4:00 pm
The 14th annual Run Through Time Marathon and Half Marathon will take place on March 9, 2019.
These beautiful, challenging courses are run on dirt/jeep roads and narrow, hilly singletrack with fantastic views of Salida and the Arkansas Valley. Elevations range from 7000-9000 feet. Foot travel only. Courses include single-track, jeep trail, and dirt roads. There is a 7 hour time limit for the marathon, and a 6 hour time limit for the half marathon. No crews or pacers on either course. Please be aware that March weather in the mountains can be unpredictable. Registration for 2019 is open now online here. Marathon will begin at 8am, and the half marathon and 2 mile fun run will begin at 9am.
Race takes place on the Arkansas Hills Trail System, BLM and Forest Service land, and Chaffee County and City of Salida roads and property. Many of the trails used for this race were built and are currently maintained by Salida Mountain Trails, a volunteer based organization. This race is a fundraiser for this organization, and many of their members will be out volunteering on race day.
There will also be a 2 mile run, and a free, untimed, kids 400 meter fun run.
Find more information at the Chaffee County Running Club website.

We look forward to seeing you in March!
