The 5k will not have an aid station except at the start/finish line.
The 10k has an aid station at about mile 2.5 into it. This is at the top of the climb for the 10k. This is also the only aid station for the 10k.
The Half will go to the same aid station as the 10k (2.5 miles), then get a 2nd aid station around mile 6.5, will pass it and return to it after a 2 mile out and back (mile 8.5).
Our aid stations are green! To reduce waste, bring your own reusable bottle for water at aid stations along the course. This reduces waste and environmental impact and falls in line with our BMARE philosphy. Rapid filling nozzles will be used so you don't waste precious time filling up.
Car pooling is encouraged to lower the impact on the environment. Racer Parking is first come-first serve @ Starsmore discovery center parking area. No parking in handicapped or coned areas. No parking up N. Cheyenne Canon beyond Starsmore or S. Cheyenne Canon Road ways. Overflow parking is at Cheyenne Mtn High School Lower Parking Lot. There will NOT be a shuttle provided for those parking in the overflow at the high school so be prepared for a warm up jog to get to check-in.
